[Image-SIG] Clipped text, still.

I tried installing 1.1.6, mostly to see the improvements in clipped 
text.   PIL 1.1.5 would clip pieces of text that extended beyond the 
character width, and would wrap those pixels around to the other side of 
the image.  So "joe" might lose part of the bulb of the j and display it 
below the e.

But 1.1.6 still clips the bulb.  It no longer transports the lost pixels 
to the other end of the string, but the clipping still happens.  Is 
there some new calling technique that I don't know about to get all of 
the text displayed?  I also see low descenders still being clipped (like 
the bottoms of g's).

I'm running on Windows, Python 2.4, PIL 1.1.6 installed from binaries, 
using Georgia font.
