Created attachment 61324 claws mail backtrace
Some users of Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04 are getting program crashes along with this error.
claws-mail: /build/buildd/cairo-1.10.2/src/cairo-surface.c:1287: cairo_surface_set_device_offset: Assertion `status == CAIRO_STATUS_SUCCESS' failed. Aborted (core dumped)
The above one is specific to claws mail but the error is basically the same for other software.
This is likely affecting Chromium browser, Pidgin, Banshee, Gwibber and Claws Mail.
