A *lot* has happened with the clipping code since 1.8, so this could 
very well be.

Sounds bad!  Could you open a bug report on bugs.freedesktop.org 
against cairo 1.9.6 and attach a minimal standalone test case which 
reproduces your problem?  It's far too easy to miss bug reports on the 
mailing list or assume they've been dealt with by the reporter if 
things go quiet.

is all the more appreciated!  Keep rattling those bells, please. :)
