Thanks for being on your toes, Bryce!

Vladimir just added this test, (expecting it to crash), so he didn't
add a reference image. But the test doesn't crash due to some subtle
changes in exactly what cairo is doing with overflowing doubles when
converting to fixed-point, (generating different garbage than it did
So the test isn't useful for what it was originally written for, but
perhaps it is useful as a reminder that there's an identified bug here
that hasn't been fixed.
What I think would be useful would be to write a test that calls into
pixman with the original trapezoid that is known to tickle the bug. In
order to write a test that can do this, we'll need to enable a new
"for testing only" build that doesn't hide all the private
functions. (Once we do that, we could also eliminate the exemption of
_cairo_test from the checks for leaked private symbols. Additionally
we could just not even compile the _cairo_test functions when not in
the "Testing only build".).
In the meantime, Vlad, would you like to just remove the current
big-trap test? Or mark it XFAIL or something?
