Hi guys,

I've been maintaining luajit ffi bindings for cairo for about few 
months, and been doing some small experiments. I'm still very much 
newbie, but there is plently to learn from the library, and I've already 
did a "sketch" of a simple ui interface.

There is one small annoyance, (though not critical for me), the Windows 
version of the latest cairo-dev (straight from the git depot) hasn't 
been working for the last few months.

For me, this was the last checkin that worked:

And this was the one where breakage start happening (I have to provide 
more stack details if that's needed)

I understand that I'm doing the non-standard thing, of relying on 
development branch, rather than stable release, but I thought to share 
this with you in any case if this information helps anyone.
