If you can provide a minimal test case, I can look at this.

But, even without that, I have a suspicion about what the problem
might be. There is a known bug in libpixman in that the repeat
attribute is not properly handled when a transformation matrix is
applied to the source image. If I'm not mistaken, cairo is always
applying a transformation matrix, (perhaps an identity matrix, but
that should be enough to tickle the bug I think).
