Ludovic, do you only see this with your distribution's builds?  Or also with the builds from ftp.mozilla.org?

Hi Boris,

Yes it was with my distribution build (Mandriva).

I've downloaded 3.6.8 from ftp.mozilla.org in release directory and all is working fine.

You can close the bug if you want.

Do I open a bug on my distribution ?

Regards,

Ludovic
Please, yes.  My best guess is that they're linking against a system cairo version instead of our in-tree one and hitting bugs in it that aren't present in the version we tested with...

Thank you for testing; I really appreciate you taking the time to do that.
