[cairo] win32 code not thread safe

Ah, one more issue to bring back.
Win32 code uses _get_global_font_dc() function that uses shared
variable for DC:
static HDC hdc; //<<<<<<<<<<-----------------
This needs to be solved somehow.
In origial report I have proposed workaround,
that made Cairo at least not to fail.
The code is not perfect since I create one separate DC instance per
thread, but I never free them. So app creating and _destroying_ threads
will have DC leakage.
Some win32 hacker should find a better way.
