Ticket #943 (new defect)
wxpython gui hangs after switching to cairo display driver
|Reported by:||epatton||Owned by:||grass-dev@…|

The wxpython Map Display window freezes and becomes unresponsive after changing the display driver from 'default' to 'cairo'.
I have compiled Grass 6.5 from a fresh checkout from svn, set --with-cairo, --with-cairo-libs=/usr/lib, and --with-cairo-includes=/usr/include. One thing I just noticed is that the configure line
checking for cairo linking flags...
appears as it does above, with no confirmation about whether or not it found cairo linking flags. But then I'm not sure it it's supposed to print anything in a successful case, either.
I've checked my package manager, and I have libcairo2 and libcairo2-dev installed, versions 1.8.8.
Anything else I should check? Can anyone confirm this error?
