This is probably something other than Cairo support given the error relates to treeview models - perhaps your recompile fixed that too - but it would be tricky to nail down, I think. Closing WORKSFORME given that the problem has gone away with a more complete GObject-system/Python build.

After I corrected the PyGObject build to be compiled against cairo, as described in #20688, the error does no longer occur.

Gentoo Linux, git master. I still have the offending config dir, I attached it as a tar'ed file (it's a .mypaint directory, so you probably won't see it without ls -a after extracting). I'll bisect as soon as I can.

Cool error. Zero's certainly in the range mentioned...

What operating system and version are you using, please?

Unfortunately I can't reproduce this one out unless I know what was in your old config and user data files. Did you change any settings or do anything which might provoke a bug with the display of the layer visibility state on startup?

If you have backups and know git well, please use bisect to identify the troublesome commit. I don't think it's to do with the migration to XDG config dirs.

Only after I deleted the old ~/.mypaint, mypaint would start. Before that, it would give me strange errors like

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/manday/local/share/mypaint/gui/layerswindow.py", line 353, in layer_visible_datafunc
layer = model.get_value(tree_iter, 0)
File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gi/types.py", line 43, in function
return info.invoke(*args, **kwargs)
ValueError: 0 not in range -2147483648 to 2147483647
