OK, thinking about it, the “discrepancy” is not due to any difference
in the meaning of “clear”, but is down to the difference in what I am
actually compositing: in the Cairo example this is just one patterned
rectangle, where in the Pixman one it is the entire source Image
containing said rectangle.

Now to decide which one I should change to be consistent with the other
one... :)
