Hi all,

When trying to run the cairo tests&libs, extracted from the git-repositry
recently I get on my OpenVMS machine

%SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO, access violation, reason mask=00, virtual address=000000000000
001C, PC=000000000012A970, PS=0000001B
%TRACE-F-TRACEBACK, symbolic stack dump follows
  image    module    routine             line      rel PC           abs PC
 libcairo  cairo-surface  _cairo_surface_acquire_dest_image
                                        24365 0000000000001370 000000000012A970

The error occurs almost immidiately and the same error occurs for all test
programs in the test directory. It should be something introduced in the
last 2 weeks, since the version extracted on October 12 passes most of the

An access violation normally means adressing memory outside the area
allocated to the program (i.e. reading outside array boundaries, wrong
pointers, calling missing routines, etc..) 


Bush : All votes are equal but some votes are more equal than others.
