We use Cairo on OS X (and other systems) with image backend as the only
option. It works just fine.

If the pattern of use is to draw into image backend and then paint that
elsewhere, it may be the same issue we've been hit with after a recent
update - the need to mark surface as "dirty" to "commit" changes?
