Would it be possible for you to test your program on cairo 1.9.4?
I can reproduce the bugs I linked above on 1.8.8 but they are not
present in 1.9.4
(Well, I'm not sure they're not present, but at least, they don't
trigger a crash. I'm checking the font handling changes to make sure,
if possible, that the bug has been solved and not just moved somewhere
