Hello - thanks for the reply. And yeah, I figured those weren't
relevant, but I had noted them down before I knew where exactly this
issue was, and they were just carried over with a cut-and-paste.

I don't suppose you've got any tips as to how I'd build up a new PyCairo
version on my Windows VM? I'm definitely a Linux guy, and doing this
recent testing is more time than I've spent in Windows in *years* - I'm
not at all familiar with the toolchains necessary to build this up on
a Windows platform. The most recent version of PyCairo which seems to
be available in binary format is the build at pygtk.org,  which is
just the 1.4 version. I'd like to try out other versions (including
your recent fixes in CVS) but knowing how to build it on Windows would
certainly help. :)
For Cairo itself, I did actually reproduce this issue using Cairo 1.8.6
(1.8.4 doesn't seem to be avialable from the gtk+ Windows download
page anymore  ) and PyCairo 1.4.12.
So yeah, if you've got any pointers for me, that'd be great.
The Cairo versions jump from 1.8.0 to 1.8.6 there...
