Thank you, it took me more than a day to get FcFini() to work.
All "mem leaks" :P  are gone now.

Indeed, we are using only quite simple APIs of cairo like drawing
lines, polygons and some texts. The performance is great so far. For
text, we just have to display some TTF fonts in Japanese and cairo did
it good. Can you tell me the merits of pangocairo over cairo? Does it
support Unicode ( UTF-8 ) ?
