Related: tdf#100925 background not getting set under X sometimes
not sure why this is the case, but it is reminiscent of rhbz#1283420 which results in missing glyphs in some circumstances X11CairoTextRender::getCairoContext has a hack in it for that problem, whic forces a read from the underlying X Drawable before writing to it which seems to have the effect of syncing it up. So, just before drawing the bg, draw a glyph on it to get it synced, and then overwrite it.
