The solution to this is to select the render tool, hold down the shift key on the keyboard and click on the window you want to render. The rendering dialog will come up. To the right of "raytracing" will be a button called "Expert". Click on this button to bring up your "Rendering Esoterica" window.

Look for the entry called "Maximum Tracing Block Size", set this lower to pick up more detail in your image. A setting of "1" is your best bet for catching every little bit, but may slow down your rendering speed.

This will also help when you have textures with thin lines that don't render properly.
