I tested Safari 3 and last WebKit nightly and they are OK: no darker bar.

Yes, something's different near the nose, compared to the reference image.

Brett, this appears to be due to an anti-aliasing artifact.  Is this something you 
should take?
Wikipedia also states this issue in Google Chrome.

the official name is acid2 :-)
I've tested this in Firefox 3.0.10, Opera 9.64, Opera 10 alpha and Safari 4 Public Beta 

FIREFOX: Bug. The nose is bigger compared to the reference rendering and it seems to be 
some sort of antialiasing artifact in it.
SAFARI: Bug. The nose is smaller than the one in the reference rendering.
Chrome The very same bug from Firefox!
Again... answering to centralk...

IE8: perfect match
FIREFOX: ok the nose seems to be a little smaller, but I think it is due to the anti-
aliasing effect. There is no the darker bar at the left side of the nose. (this bug 
refers to it)
CHROME 3.xx or 2.xx : as firefox but plus the darker bar (real bug).
SAFARI: ok, no darker bar.
Status: Invalid
This isn't a bug. The nose is allowed to be anti-aliased.
I don't understand why the bug has been closed.

The bug does not refer to anti-aliased (or not) nose. It refers to the darker bar
that appear on the left side, as highlighted in the two initial attachments (BMP).

That bar does not appear to any of the other browsers.

If you have a notebook, to see really well that bar please open the lid very widely
and see the pic with a big vertical angle.
