[cairo] Trouble resizing (scaling) an XImage

Thank you for your response. I actually was copying the width and height
from my memory and forgot to include the (double) cast. It doesn't make a
difference in practice. Even trying a hard-coded 0.75 to presumably get a
75% image does not work.
I'm actually now having cairo paint the scaled image into a Pixmap instead
of directly onto the window, so I can inspect the pixels. They seem to be
I wonder if it's a depth issue. As I said, the source is an 8 bit grayscale
image but the screen is 24 or 32 bits. I'm not sure if cairo can handle
paining from one depth to another.
