Andrea, thanks for all of your excellent work on the OSX aspects of Cairo. I really really appreciate them.

Can you elaborate any more about those crashes? On OSX, I get crashes when trying to display mesh gradients on a quartz surface. But other traditional source types (solid colors, gradients) seem to work fine. We do an interesting dance between Cairo and our VM for quartz surfaces, so when it dies, I always have to wonder. But now I'm wondering if these are perhaps known issues already.
