Bug#519221: libpixman -- bug recently submitted related to your patch
Earlier, I provided my xorg configuration and Xorg.0.log (they were
not addressed to you, but you can find them on the bug's page). They
may help you to set up an environment.
There is no colour depth specified in my xorg configuration, so it's
whatever it defaults to -- I guess 24?
I have a laptop running debian (intel video drivers) where this bug
does not appear. Therefore, it looks like something particular to my
configuration. I hope you can reproduce it on your test setup, but if
not, I am happy to try anything you suggest or apply any patches.
Thanks for all your help,
