I'm afraid that the bug is in that short snippet of code. The attached
test case shows the same problem.

As a minimal test case needs thraeding, I can only do this in python.
If you need anything in C, can you please point me to a simple C
program with threads?

The example png here is one of 9 broken pngs in the result of 200.

I run Ubuntu 8.10 with cairo 1.8.8.
