Hi Chris,

Yes! that was it, adding a cairo_save(cr) right after creating the 
surface fixed it!

Hum.. I'm not sure I understand why I need to do a save before i do 
anything else (since there's nothing on the page yet) but hey it works!

Thanks a lot,


PS: Thanks also for the pointer to cairo_trace
