Fix the "disappearing text" bug
-------------------------------
With cairo 1.2.0 many people reported that text would disappear from
applications, sometimes reappearing with mouse motion or
selection. The text would disappear after the first space in a string
of text. This bug was caused by an underlying bug in (very common) X
servers, and only affected text rendered without antialiasing, (either
a bitmap font or a vector font with antialiasing disabled). The bug
was also exacerbated by a KDE migration bug that caused antialiasing
to be disabled more than desired.
