It is, but because this is not used normally (not recommended under
Cocoa) rectangle expose events aren't even generated by the port, so
I'd need to add that to check.  However, looking at the patch, it
seems the change is to use multiple clip rects in some row overlap
cases.  In the Cocoa port there is a bug where the upper parts of
Tibetan text are cut off until cursor is moved over them, and it may
be related to this.  I'll try the patch as soon as I get time, next

FWIW, I can't see any reason this patch would slow things down
noticeably in X, though I have not looked at the W32 code.
