Bug Description

I found out that a update to libcairo2 version 1.11.3+git20111109.90b2fd34-0ubuntu0ricotz lead to this problem. Downgrading back to version libcairo2_1.11.3+git20111015.3813066f-0ubuntu1~11.10~ricotz0 the gtk+ apps got rendered right on the screen.
Also, if I disable the oxygen-gtk theme or start the application with another theme the problem goes away. The problem occurs in natty too and the attached file shows four screens, on the right side the bug shows up.
Disabling desktop effects does not solve this issue and this also affects my laptop with intel video and xorg from xedgers.
From now I had to stick to the version of libcairo to the one that works good, its a temporary fix I think.

Sorry for do no attempt to this at bug reporting, but I should had named it with [xorg-edgers] as this version of libcairo2 comes from this ppa.

I can confirm that this bug does not exist with newer version of libcairo2. By now I am using 1.11.3+git20111125.a6def387-0ubuntu0ricotz~oneiric1. I don't know if any version prior to this had the bug solved since I had locked libcairo2 and decided to try a new version today. Happy to see this bug has gone.

Thanks so much.
