@aperezdc Hmmm, I'm starting to deal with fixed point overflows, which is not directly tied to the max surface size, but I am curious about it. Tell me more? When is that size not enough?
@federicomena For example when some websites will serve sprite sheets e.g. all emojis as a single PNG, which may be one column or row of sprites (so 32x35000px, or 35000x32px)
@federicomena A less borderline case than image sprite sheets is taking a “screenshot” of all the contents of a webpage (not just what's seen on the window): when the page is a few (15-20) screenfulls, like a long Wikipedia article, which can easily be more than 32K px tall. Or for shorter pages around 16K px tall, if a 2x scale factor is in use (because HiDPI), there you go again over the 32K size limit.
@federicomena I could probably find more examples, but those two are just from the top of my head without even needing to go and dig bug reports.
@aperezdc shit, it's a Pixman limitation.
