Hmm, there are 2 things i observed:
1) it has nothing to do with scaling or other transformations, it
   happens at all zoom levels and with rotated or non rotated frames.

2) it definitly does not happen if you don't close the path. It does
   only happen to closed paths. I assume that the implicit moveTo
   at the end of a closed path triggers it.
