As a follow-up to this, our team has verified this, and it only occurs in ATI/AMD Macs. This will be resolved in a future patch. When I have more details, I will pass it on in our known issues sticky.

Thank you!
You may already be aware (as it's still in the known issues sticky!), but 5.2 didn't resolve this... :(

[AMD/ATI] Projected Textures are appearing above the geometry they are placed on.
Yup. This requires more work, which is why I still included it. When I have more info about it, I'll post it in the sticky.
Bumping this (still present in 5.3) - doesn't appear to be resolved on the 5.4 PTR (yet...?)
