  \fill[pattern=horizontal lines] (0,0) -- (2,2) to[out=90,in=180] (4,5) -- (7,5) -- (7,0) -- cycle;
  \fill[pattern=north east lines] (0,0) -- (2,2) to[out=0,in=270] (4,5) -- (0,5) -- cycle;


produces this: bad pattern fill

The "north east lines" pattern spills out to the right of the path it's supposed to be filling, which is definitely not what I want. What am I doing wrong?

I can't replicate this on MikTeX 2.9, pdflatex, TikZ CVS version, Sumatra and Acrobat. Might be a viewer issue – percusse Mar 3 '13 at 13:25
Oh, weird. I think you're right that it might be a viewer issue. I see the overflow in evince, but not with xpdf. – uckelman Mar 3 '13 at 13:31

This appears to be a rendering bug in poppler, since xpdf renders the diagram correctly. I've reported this as Bug 61737 at https://bugs.freedesktop.org.
