Hi Nick,

Thanks for the patch. It looks like Eugeniy already committed a
similar fix:


It doesn't add the READ_ERROR and FILE_NOT_FOUND cases but those
really aren't possible for surface_create anyway, (well it could
be useful to distinguish between a non-existent destination directory
as opposed to some other write error, but neither the original patch
nor what was committed do that).

Anyway, let us know if the fix that's there now isn't doing what you
