pdftops incorrectly renders Bézier curves when part of closed paths

Created attachment 110766 Original PDF with curves which are part of closed paths (top 3) or not (bottom 2)
When Bézier curves are part of closed paths, pdftops renders them as rectangles.
Attached: original PDF which includes sample curves. Top three are part of closed paths. Bottom two are part of open paths. When pdftops is applied to this file, the top three paths are rendered as rectangles, while the bottom two render fine.
If I can attach a second file in a moment, I will also attach the PS output.
The problem can be demonstrated by viewing the resulting postscript in Okular (with the ghostscript backend), Evince, gv and when printing.
For comparison, pdf2ps (ghostscript) renders the curves correctly.
