I think this is clearly the semantic we want. The problem is that 
libpixman and RENDER don't work that way. 

For A => B we temporarily clear the clip on A when using it as a source.

But for A => A we need to "fork" the input surface when operating from a
surface to itself with a clip. (Create another Picture really.)
