We use swrast because its the best way of ensuring that developers can get consistent results for the layout tests.

Otherwise it will be a nightmare. Think in developers having nvidia cards, or intel ones. With different versions of the drivers, etc.

I have tested the following:

1) Reproduce the problem. I was able to do this at the first try. The trick is run the whole test suite using the same workers as number of CPUs, which is the default. So if you want to reproduce this, don't force any number of workers and simply tun the full test suite.

I did this:
    $ Tools/Scripts/run-webkit-tests --no-show-results --no-new-test-results --no-sample-on-timeout --results-directory layout-test-results-xvfb-swrast --debug-rwt-logging --release --gtk

And I got this:
