I'm indeed using the old pango_ft2_get_context().  Switching to the above
makes the font disappear entirely, but their height seems awfully big.

The layout is created with 

dia_font_build_layout(const char* string, DiaFont* font, real height)
    PangoLayout* layout;
    PangoAttrList* list;
    PangoAttribute* attr;
    guint length;

    height *= 0.7;

    layout = pango_layout_new(pango_context);

    length = string ? strlen(string) : 0;
    list = pango_attr_list_new();
    pango_font_description_set_family(font->pfd, g_utf8_strdown(pango_font_description_get_family(font->pfd), -1));
    attr = pango_attr_font_desc_new(font->pfd);
    attr->start_index = 0;
    attr->end_index = length;
    pango_attr_list_insert(list,attr); /* eats attr */

      int lwidth, lheight;
      pango_layout_get_size(layout, &lwidth, &lheight);

      printf("Layout dia height %f pfd height %d layout height %d, width %d\n",
	     height, pango_font_description_get_size(font->pfd),
	     lheight, lwidth);
    return layout;

The final printf gives things like

Layout dia height 175.000000 pfd height 3583999 layout height 4096, width 2032

for a big font zoomed in all the way.  Is there something I should set that
I don't?
