Any idea when this will be merged into the stable branch release?

OpenBSD contains the stable branch of gnustep in the ports tree, where gnustep-gui 1.16.0 is included, which is the latest available stable release.
I tried several times to get the maintainer to switch to unstable, but as it is policy to not include sth. called unstable into the ports, he refused my request.

anyways, thanks for pointing me to -unstable.

I think this problem was caused by a change in the cairo API. They fixed a long standing issue and we had to adopt our code. This was done in GNUstep back almost half a year ago, this change is in 0.17.1 and was the main reason for that release.

Your GNUstep packages are rather outdated could you please try newer ones or even better GNUstep SVN? Another possibility is to switch back to an older cairo release :-(

I am running with cairo on FreeBSD. I do not experience the same problem.

I have:
cairo-1.8.8,1       Vector graphics library with cross-device output support

I am running against SVN trunk though.

See appended image, with xlib backend everything is fine.
Afer resizing the window, it is looking fine again.

gnustep-back-0.16.0p0-cairo GNUstep gui backend
gnustep-base-1.18.0p2 GNUstep base library
gnustep-gui-0.16.0p2 GNUstep gui library
gnustep-make-2.0.7  GNUstep makefile package
cairo-1.8.8         vector graphics library
OpenBSD 4.6, i386 -base linked against ffcall or libffi, both have the problem.
