Ah, sorry, I misunderstood -- when you mentioned that you were gettig
two-pixel-wide blurred lines I assumed you were drawing individual
lines.  I think you want to translate by +0.5,+0.5 instead of
-0.5,-0.5, though I don't think that would explain the slowdown (just
maybe an off-by-one in your rendered output).  Other than that, I'm
not really sure what to suggest, other than maybe stepping through
cairo_stroke() and seeing where you deviate from the optimized paths
(usually indicated in comments).
