I think the problem (or at least part of it) is a missing call to 
display_acquire_window_surface() before glEGLImageTargetTexture2DOES(). 
Some of cairo-gl functions will call eglMakeCurrent() with 
EGL_NO_CONTEXT before returning, so it is just by chance that sometimes 
we have the right context bound when bind the eglImage to the texture.

However, once I add the display_acquire_window_surface() call, some 
flicker starts to happen. It seems that when toytoolkit defers rendering 
because there is a frame callback it ends up calling eglSwapBuffers() 

Patches coming soon.
