While I agree that a future release of pixman should make stronger
guarantees about thread safety, the bug here is that cairo randomly
assumes that pixman ref counting is atomic, which it isn't and never

Just fix that bug in cairo 1.10.2 (and then don't rely on pixman
features until pixman actually has those features).
