 We don't know if we're hitting the stall, so we don't know how bad it is
 when we hit it.

 I had a look at what cairobench does, and it never tries to fill
 a non rectangular area with a solid color, which is what would
 have triggered our codepath.

 I still have my testcase that does exactly this, although it wasn't
 meant to be benchmark.  We could limit the number of iterations
 and use time on it.

 Sorry, but as I said, I'm not closing the bug to end the discussion.
 I just think it doesn't belong here because it's unrelated to this
 bug.  It's a performance problem triggered by an EXA misbehavior.

 triggered the bug, ie. using the developer console in sugar.

 Or the atteched XRender program...
