Behdad spotted that the snippet was missing an initial cairo_save().
After adding that, the output looks like the axes for a graph, and
importantly look the same for the image and PS backends, using both
cairo-1.6 and master. This is the first hint of a regression with 1.7 so
its important for us that we are able to resolve it before 1.8 (which
Behdad keeps insisting is tomorrow ;-) If you please can verify the test
case and also grab a couple of screenshots to serve as a reference.
