[cairo] Coordinate from device to user space without a context

(I'm using vala - fwiw)
My code is in an event handler that does not have a Cairo.Context -- I
am in a drag operation and I want to pass my mouse x,y into the drag-object.
The drag-object has pre-stored its Cairo.Matrix - when it was asked to
draw() in the past, it had a Context passed to it. In there, a SM =
cr.get_matrix() was done.
I now want the object to transform the mouse x,y into coordinates that
are in user space according to the stored matrix (SM).
(The drag object may have been under an arbitrary number of matrix
transforms in the past.)
I'm just not math smart and I don't even know if what I'm asking is
possible. I see these kinds of funcs in Cairo:
.. but I don't know what they do.
I have tried the transform_point one. Something like this:
(In the object's move method)
SM.transform_point(mousex,mousey) <-- they do change. Chaotically.
this.x = mousex
this.y = mousey
(later, in the draw method - those x,y vars are used in a translate call.)
.. but - I get weird offsets and such.
I want the drag-object to move along under my mouse coords.
I'm shooting in the dark really. Can someone help this math-deficient
I attached my test code - in case.
