It's FreeType then. So yeah, you should do the same kind of processing on the

I thought your only problem left was caused by the duplicating (you said your
problem now is to do with the caps).

Ok, I suggest:
process path here and add back to cairo_t
All this in your UserFont render callback.

No I'm not saying. But I didn't know that's happening. Previously you said
if you fill them it happens, and that's expected because fill() does implicit
close_path. But cairo_stroke doesn't. If it's happening with cairo_stroke(),
then the closing is coming from FreeType, which actually I'm not surprised at
all, since FreeType is designed for contour fonts.
