[cairo] odd line widths are slow

You probably want cairo_set_line_cap (cr, CAIRO_LINE_CAP_SQUARE), too.
You need to be aware that points on a path describe the center of a
line. So if you draw a line from 0,0 to 10,0 with a line width of 2 and
a line cap of square, it'll result in a rectangle from -1,-1 to 11,1.
And if you draw with a line with line width of 3, it'll go from
-1.5,-1.5 to 11.5,1.5.
And the moment you're not pixel aligned on the output anymore, stuff
goes noticably slower.
