Hmm, this implies that surface->backend is NULL within
_cairo_surface_acquire_dest_image - 0x1c is the offset of
backend->acquire_dest_image. (I was thinking this was the patch
I made to remove the cairo_image_surface_backend from the error
surfaces, which reduces cairo's .data down to below 1 page, but it seems
I've yet to push that one...) 

However, as this is impossible (!), a little more detective work is in
order. Could you try to git bisect the broken commit? Thanks.
