I'm sorry I forgot I rebuild with 1.6.4 last night.....
Ok the snipet I sent yesterday might have missed a cairo_save (i
probably forgot a copy/paste) but it is definately still missing a bunch
when linking against 1.76. and it works fine against 1.6.4 so i'll be
suing this for now
hope this helps, and again sorry for the false hapy ending :(
For now i'm going to revert 1.6.4 for our stuff
