Note that before the nipple on the breast did not show - now that shows but the letters render poorly (P and D) - likely related I think

in addition to the nipple showing in 4.2, the mermaid has a lower lip, more scales on the tale, and a belly button. the poorly rendered letters are A, R, and D, not P (joel must have been so mesmerized by the nipple).

Adding bfoman and jorendc as the nipple saga continues. Two guys so consumed about the title of the previous bug report to actually check if the nipple was there or not. You guys crack me up. :)

Glad you were able to track it down so quickly Michael. You seem to be on a role today as i've gotten alot of emails from you to many triaged bugs. :)
