Do you have some simple test cases to demonstrate this so we can
identify and fix anything necessary in cairo?

The scaling code in cairo, (for downscaling by factors greater than
2), could definitely use some improvement, (the current result is
embarrassingly ugly). But what GdkPixbuf does here is actively bad for
performance. I'd like to see some middle-ground implementation.
