That's the question I asked before too.  The current show_glyphs in
cairo-win32-font.c seems to just work with win32 surfaces.  I have no
idea how it can draw to an image surface.  I still think clearing
cairo-win32-font.c of cairo-win32-surface stuff is the way to go.  A
font backend's show_glyphs should work for any surface.  If it's
win32-surface-specific, it should go into cairo-win32-surface.c, and
there is one there already...

Vlad, care to enlighten us?
