While we're at it, it should be 805*805 of uint32_t, not of double.  A  
memory chunk of 805*805*3 doubles is plenty big for an 805x805 ARGB32  
image, but I hope you're not going to try accessing it directly :)

But given that you're using cairo_image_surface_create, and not  
create_for_data, I'm guessing that you want to read data to or from  
the double array, and not use it directly as a cairo surface.  Just  
heap allocate the data and you should be fine.
