Yes, I just applied this to our local mozilla tree -- I agree that we  
should just force buggy_repeat to TRUE for now in cairo releases as  
well, until the X bug is resolved.  It may be helpful to add an env  
var to disable the forcing, so that people who are debugging the X  
server have an easier way of doing so :)
