Hi Behdad and others,
I haven't had any responses to this, so I am wondering if you guys
need further information on the bug that I could perhaps provide.
The bug is really elusive, it only occurs when all of the following hold:
1) I am using the PS backend,
2) using colors with alpha channel (RGBA),
3) drawing both text and lines/fills
The floating point exception only comes when I destroy the context
(surface was destroyed when I created the context), not during the
I wonder if there is any information I can extract from C structures
residing in memory that would aid the debugging of this problem (some
kind of state dump, etc).
