cairo testcase for #7494
Simple testcase for #7494. Revert 456cdb3058f3b416109a9600167cd8842300ae14 in
cairo to test.
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
This is worked around in a subtly different way in current cairo, so simply backing out their workaround is a bit harder. I don't see anything that would trigger this in the Render code from a cursory examination, but it's not critical to address for 7.4. Moving to 7.5.
and moving out to 7.6 ...
Is this still reproducible?
Eric, is this still an issue? Based on above, it looks like it's being worked around now.
Not blocking 1.10.x, moving to 1.11 tracker.
No response from reporter, possibly fixed or marginal impact. Closing.
