[webkit-dev] Text selection bug: text disappearing (WINDOWS)

I saw disappearing text under gdk also different circumstances and
with a different font
binding so I suspect its deeper in the core cairo binding. My guess is
the color is not
getting set correctly so you might be drawing white text.

Set a background image for the page and see if the text is there in
the background color.
(If you don't mind :)
