[cairo] working around bug #9983

Hi Cairo list,

  I've written a (very simple) small dialog that lets you print some
photos in a grid on a single page [1]. I think that I am running into
bug 9983: the photo grid looks good on screen, but when I do a
print-preview, the PDF file has the images repeated in strange ways.
It only seems to happen when high resolution images are drawn below a
certain size[2].

  Is there a way that I can work around this bug in my code?


[1]: http://code.google.com/p/photo-grid-print/ -- my first PyGTK app,
and my first real use of Cairo, please don't be too harsh :).
[2]: Doing a print preview of images that are 2048x1536 with
"Dimensions" set to 3 rows by 5 columns seems to trigger it.
