Summary0012109: The fill of a curve with only two nodes is not exported in the PDF
DescriptionIf you create a curve with the "Bezier Curve" tool, and then add a fill, the fill will not be exported in the PDF if the curve has only two nodes (end nodes).

If you just add one additional node on the curve, the fill will be exported in the PDF.

If you import a drawing (e.g. an SVG from Inkscape), the same problem occurs.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a line with the "Bezier Curve" tool.
2. Move one handle to make it a curve.
3. Open the "Properties" window, and go to the "Colors" tab, select "Edit Fill Color Properties", and select a color.
4. Export the file in PDF. The fill is not present in the PDF.
5. Click twice on the curve to open the "Nodes" window, and add one node on the curve (+ = Add a Node).
6. Export the file in PDF. The fill is now present in the PDF.
Additional InformationTested with versions 1.4.3 (Windows 7) and 1.5.0 (Linux Ubuntu 13.10). Same behavior.
