You are correct, the save/restore did make the program work. I have also
proven that I can use a single cairo_t and redirect it to every window in my
program. Also (possibly a fix for the newest Cairo) I can resize the window
and cairo draws the entire area, previous versions would clip to the original
size and I had to destroy/create the cairo_t to fix this.
With the newest Cairo the crashing behavior appears to be different. Before I
got the image but the first resize would crash the X server. In this new one
I get black (probably correct behavior because of the transformations), and
resize does not crash (at least initially), but dragging the window entirely
off the screen and back on so it redraws does crash the X server like before.
It is possible the entirely-obscured window crashed it, or it is possible
that it crashes after N redraws where N is approximatly 100 (in this case it
does not seem that the 24.8 fixed-point is overflowing, but perhaps a 16.16
fixed or 16-bit integer value is overflowing) I'm sorry I did not test it
much beyond that.
