cairo can't draw rectangle with transparency on xo-4 or xo-1.75

  • Start Paint.
  • Select the in the toolbar Shapes, the Rectangle tool.
  • Draw a few rectangles
  • In the colors palette, change the Opacity, to something different than 100%.
  • Try draw more rectangles.


  • No rectangle is drawn. All the other shapes works ok.

If test the same on xo-1 or xo-1.5, works, the problem is only with xo-1.75 and xo-4

Attached is a simpler testcase too, Should draw two rectangles and one circle.

Looks like some fast path is not working.

As a consequence of this bug, search in evince is not highlighted, only draw the border of the rectangle.

The code drawing the selection is libview/ev-view.c: line 4391

Thanks for the simple test case. Fixed in xf86-video-dove-0.3.10. We were incorrectly truncating repeat blits thinking that they were illegaly accessing out-of-bounds image data.
