That's what I had suspected/feared.
I guess I would have hoped that a 'clear' operation would have
cleared any pixels that were 'drawn' - Sortof like a symmetric, but
inverse, operation.

In the example I gave, the context has a default/1-1 scaling on it,
and the clip points are all integral.
However, that's not really the problem I'm seeing.  The problem is
all the intermediate (diagonal) pixels between the path points that
I'm seeing aren't being cleared, and hence my question.
