Please update _only_ cairo, not rrd or anything else as stuff in  
testing may or may not
be broken and you want to test cairo only.

Definitely not. Please revert all versions from CSW packages to  
current except
cairo or you will get massive problems. testing/ is not meant to be  
fully installed
as there are no checks done between packages from testing/.
