So, offhand, I would guess that unless you're using the PDF backend,
it isn't this particular package version causing your trouble.
What might help is if you could narrow down which versions you've seen
it in. Ideal would be doing git bisect on the upstream cairo tree to
isolate the specific change.
Or if you can provide a compilable demo I could give it a shot.
