I just took a look at the float-to-string conversions in the postscript
"%f %f moveto ",
This is not locale-safe. In a locale with a decimal separator other than
"." it will not produce valid postscript. Changing the locale to "C"
while doing this is instead not threadsafe.
For an approach to do this in a thread-safe way (the only good way I
know of) see g_ascii_formatd() in glib (glib/gstrfuncs.c).
