So I updated the bug with a patch that reverts the adding of the dummy
polygons, which fixes the extra dots issue. But I also added an
example .pptx with a smiley face example which will render a little
different in the eyes afterwards.

I rather prefer loosing the ideal msoffice-alike gradient vs these odd
extra dots though.
