A crash occurs on attempting to dereference a null function pointer in Cairo's _fallback_init().  The fault occurs on this line:

Sequence of actions to reproduce:

1. Install 26 Dec 2007 nightly trunk build.
2. Go to ""
3. Select File>>Print.
4. Select the "Print to file" checkbox, then click Ok.
5. When shown the "Output File Name" dialog, click Cancel.

That's it.  The structure member that provides the  _cairo_surface_acquire_dest_image() call is zero at this point and crashes on attempted use.

Same hehavior on the 24 Dec nightly trunk build.

No crash is seen if you actually provide an output flename and clock Ok.

I can also reproduce on Windows XP with a trunk build.

error check the win32 functions and pass results back

The problem was that we kept going down the print path even though we should have aborted a while ago; StartDoc() was returning an error and we were just ignoring it.  This caused us to try to print to (what I think is) an invalid DC, which caused printing operations to fail, which caused an unfortunate CAIRO_INT_STATUS_UNSUPPORTED to get returned somewhere that really wasn't expecting it... and that led to this abort().  The latter issue is separate, but we really should be checking errors from all the print functions.

This patch might also fix some of the other random error-case win32 printing crashes.

Some DeviceContextSpec impls had a bad habit of returning NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED when they really meant NS_OK (i.e. "I have nothing that needs to be done for this call", not "the functionality to implement this is missing").  This was causing non-crashing printing to fail, because we are in a new world where we check errors now.

Thanks for fixing. I sometimes got crashes after cancelling a print (cancelling while printing) to XPS file. I'll see if this fixes it.
Verified fixed, using:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008032705 Minefield/3.0pre

But I get a "Printing failed when starting the document." error dialog on branch, while I get an "An unknown error occurred while printing." error dialog on trunk.
Maybe worth filing a new bug for, if it matters at all?
