[cairo] xcb bugs now evident even w/o xlib-xcb

On the plus side, though, that update of cairo also fixed a bug which
had caused my X server to "open" many thousands of files (as reported
by /proc/sys/fs/file-nr) when clients like ’zilla were connected.

With last week’s cairo, I had one instance where quiting a dozen-tab
instance of seamonkey meant this change:

:; cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr 
136522	0	65535
:; cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr 
1975	0	65535

With 3fde219487362e1 I have about three dozen tabs open and only about
450 extra "open" files.

(I should note that I use separate client and server boxen.  And I put
open in quotes because the files do not show up in /proc/*/maps or
in /proc/*/fd/.)

So thanks for whichever commit fixed that bug!
