Looking at your attached pdf, every long number in cairo-pdf-surface.c
that is printed with %ld is being treated as a 64-bit number. However
the bogus values indicate that long is a 32-bit integer.

It looks like cairo was compiled as a 32-bit binary while the dll
containing printf is assuming 64-bit.

Probably not. Every long integer is affected including font metrics and
the xref table.
