Thanks! That worked!  I haven't tested it on OSX yet but on Windows it 
didn't crash and Zürich is written correctly :-)

Is it possible to add this workaround to the PyCairo documentation?

Best Regards

If you have a Unicode path, and are sending it to a function that takes 
only strings, you generally want to do:


which do the right thing to encode the path into something the low-level 
C "fopen" can understand.

One could argue it might be more "Pythonic" for PyCairo to handle that 
conversion internally, but hopefully the above is the correct workaround.
