Reproduction Steps

  1. Open the debugger and type in room 17
  2. Click on the pink fish on the rope in the upper left corner of the screen (do not click on the clam to cut the rope)

During Luther's dialogue, the very bottom of the sreen will have a flashing line. See attached animated GIF

Turns out this *doesn't* happen in the English-UK version of the game, but it does in the English-US version.

I have verified that this happens in the original executable too. It's probably a corrupt data file (maybe one of Luther's lipsync frames?).

Please mark it as enhancement when fixing it!
