Hello, again, list.  One last update on this, in case anyone happened to
be curious about it.  After talking with the PyCairo folks, it looks
like this *was* a PyCairo issue after all, and the changes to the zlib
call which had apparently fixed the issue were just incidental,
basically, because of how the memory allocation ended up changing
because of the modified vars.

Anyway, a recent fix in PyCairo CVS seems to take care of it.  zlib, as
probably should have been expected, is vindicated!
