Description Federico Kereki 2005-08-10 13:15:23 UTC
I'm running SuSE 9.3. After upgrading to the latest Cairo version (0.6.0-7)
various programs are crashing, so I feel there is a serious backward
compatibility issue here.

For example, Synaptic fails with

(synaptic:11924): Gdk-WARNING **: Using Cairo rendering requires the drawable ar
                                                       gument to
have a specified colormap. All windows have a colormap,
however, pixmaps only have colormap by default if they
were created with a non-NULL window argument. Otherwise
a colormap must be set on them with gdk_drawable_set_colormap
Segmentation fault

VMWare shows the same message, preceded by 

(vmware:12216): Gtk-WARNING **: gtkobject.c:310: Property type `(null)' is not
supported by the GtkArg compatibility code

Azureus, to name a third program, also fails.

Quoting Owen Taylor on this topic:

    None of this has anything to do with Cairo in the end; GTK+ bugzilla
    is a good place to file reports of problems with GTK+ development

Move bugs against "cvs" version to "0.9.3" so we can remove the "cvs" version.
