Description Tomas Ögren 2006-09-26 15:13:54 UTC
In _cairo_xlib_surface_add_glyph() -> case CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32:
2442:            unsigned int    c = glyph_surface->stride * glyph_surface->height;
2453:            while ((c -= 4) >= 0)
c is very unlikely to go below 0, thus it goes to (unsigned int)-4 which is
quite a big number causing memory corruption.
Changing the unsigned int to signed int makes it work instead of crash.

this is fixed already.  I'll push 1.2.6 out next week.
