Error: Cairo does not yet support the requested image format:

Blue mask: 0x00000000
Please file an enhacement request (quoting the above) at:
gedit: cairo-image-surface.c:155: _cairo_format_from_pixman_format: Assertion 'NOT_REACHED' failed.
While this does not fix the issue, you might be able to work around this by configuring your X server to not use a pseudocolor 8bit visual. 256 colors are not used that often anymore.
Humm, but 1.6 and forward should support pseudo color.
Several months ago, this was working fine. Without any changes I am aware of, it seems to have just started happening.
