In my ongoing attempt to "get" G+ I jumped on there for a second this morning. I figured I'd add some more people to my Circles and see how it's all going.
Look what I saw.
When I clicked on it to open her profile, I did get the right photo and info so it seems to be a somewhat superficial bug, not one that runs deep into the system. I suppose that's good.
Here's to hoping they refine soon.
