Cairo 1.12.4 introduced a bug filed as #55799 on the freedesktop tracker. Upstream has a patch, but not yet in a release.

This bug is pretty severe when using cairo for generating PDF, as I do in WeasyPrint. (whole sections of the output are missing.)
The cairo PKGBUILD apparently already has a few patches in addition to the the upstream release. I would like to have this one added to the list before 1.12.4 gets out of Testing.
This task depends upon

This fix is 1.12.6, which was just released. Please ignore this report and instead skip 1.12.4 in [extra].
