Thanks again. I've now committed the test case, (but not the bug fix,
see below).

There's a style change I'd like to see for this bug fix. What I would
like to see is:

	if (nothing_to_do)
	    return; /* or GOTO perhaps */

rather than:

	if (! nothing_to_do) {
	    /* Big existing block now indented more. */

I've got some notes on this general style point in cairo/CODING_STYLE.

As for the correctness of the fix, I'm not yet educated enough in how
cairo_clip_t works to be able to say. If the author of the
cairo_clip_t code would be willing to document its interfaces a bit,
that would be a great help.
