I am using xf86-video-ati, on a r600 chipset.

On a mailing list thread from just after this version of Cairo was
released people were also reporting problems with Nouveau (which we
don't use) and the Intel drivers.

Things seem a little better for me with the EXAPixmaps option disabled.

There is a later version of the driver available, I will try building
it too, there seems to have been a workaround added for this problem
soon after the driver version we have in CVS was created.

I was partly wondering what we needed to do for NetBSD-6.
