Description of problem:
Browsing to http://1stline.com.br in mozilla causes metacity to crash. It

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Browse to http://1stline.com.br in mozilla
Actual Results: metacity crashes
Expected Results: erhm...
Problem is Xft crashing on huge strings

for metacity. Pango never feeds Xft more than 1024 glyphs at a time.
