This issue has been resolved.
Descriptive Problem Summary:
Giant images that were attached to a moving obj or mob can still appear or disappear suddenly as the movable moves in and out of the client's view.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1) Create a project with a moving mob that turns around when it hits a wall or the edge of the map.
2) Attach a big image (more than 4x4 tiles) to that mob and make sure the client can see it.
3) Move to a spot along the mob's route. As the mob moves in or out of view on the south or west sides, the big image will suddenly appear or disappear.

Expected Results:
The image should move smoothly in and out of view.

Actual Results:
The image acts as it would have in version 462, prior to the better big-icon support in 463.

Workarounds:
If the movable itself has a big icon, this will be sufficient for the image to act as it should.
