Yeah, I have noticed that there usually is not much testing on Windows. I
can try to test it more often before releases to at least catch bugs like
this one. I can use git fine with cygwin, but since I am at college, I am
not sure if I will be able to git-clone cairo. The wireless on campus
blocks git: addresses and all of freedesktop.org so it won't to work. I
tried wireless off campus, but I am not sure my laptop battery will hold
out long enough to download it all. A tar file snapshot would make it much
easier for me to test a pre-release version.
