Cairo patterns need to be disposed, and the finalizer is a no-op without even printing a warning (there's a hashtable keeping references so it wouldn't run till app shutdown anyway). This is potentially a big memory leak.

I haven't seen any Cairo.Pattern leaks while profiling, so I guess this can be safely closed.
