Its possible you've run into this bug:

...which was fixed a couple of nights ago. Are you using cairo from
git, or a release? This bug was in the 1.5.2 release but not 1.4.10.

A cut down test case that reproduces the problem in python would be
nice. If its small you can just put that inline in your message, if
its bigger just mail me off-list and I can check it against the git
version. Normally I'd suggest having a go yourself and learning to
play with git-bisect, but if that is the bug its hard to bisect to,
there's a bunch of commits that don't compile on mac surrounding it.
