[cairo] Call to cairo_paint triggers an assertion

My bad.  I've been working with a few variations of this code and got a
bit lost when I wrote my last note.  The actual, current code is below.
The actual symptom is the white background from the pixmap is drawn in
the destination image, but the source image is not copied.

Chris Wilson, I'll look into the NO_WINDOW GtkMisc.  Can you show a
small sample of its use?

In researching this problem I find that others have tried to implement
rotation by an arbitrary amount in a GTK application.  I assume they've
all eventually found a working solution, but none was posted.  Once I
get this working I'll post the program here to help out the next person
with this problem.

Thank You,
