yeah... and its easier to see whats wrong at that size.
see commit fb1683deed31d7ee9def4d8d2ab839dd13321f70

it changes scale to 1.0 (the 0.5 translate is necessary to make cairo
draw single pixel lines. integer coordinates are on the pixel
boundaries, and cairos antialiasing would produce a 2 pixel wide line
with half intensity without it.)
