See it this way:

- what about setting the surface NULL in the cairo_surface_destroy after
destroying it? It will fix all these issues, but it is apparently not the right
way how to fix such bugs.

I think that all the wrong paths leading to the second call of the
cairo_surface_destroy should be fixed/cleaned. But I am not upstream, so it's
irrelevant what I am thinking about it.
