It's definitely a clipping issue. A workarround I've found is to use
StringFormatFlags.NoClip (when possible). The problem seems to be
between libgdiplus and Cairo.
Is there any libgdiplus/Cairo developper on this list? I need someone
pointing me in the right direction here. Or perhaps this is a very
simple issue for a experienced libgdiplus/Cairo developper.
The clipping code in ligbdiplus' DrawString is very simple and
straightforward, and this entry on the libgdiplus ChangeLog makes me wonder:

* graphics.c: Commented out cairo_clip calls from GdipDrawString,
as these were causing problems. Thanks to Peter for suggesting this
fix. This fixes, bug #60386, #60663, #61414. These bugs were
because of some problem with Cairo clipping. And, these are not
reproducable with Cairo cvs, because Cairo seems to have some
which have solved the problem with clipping in Cairo.
Also, fixed gdip_plot_path function to handle path point types
Is this a Cairo problem? I tried both internal Cairo from libgdiplus svn
and system Cairo (1.8.0 from Fedora 10) with the same results. On the
clipping works as expected with Pango text rendering.
