Description Mats Palmgren 2011-01-20 21:33:42 UTC
cairo_win32_print_gdi_error() use fwprintf with a char* format.
It should also flush stderr so that all error messages appears before exit.

The above two problems results in no GDI errors being printed in Firefox.

    win32: Improve error logging
    On win32 stderr is fully buffered, so fflush() should be called after
    each error to ensure it is printed to the console.
    There is no need to use fwprintf if the format string can be
    represented as char*.
