This is a bug in circle, which we can fix, though you can minimize by
using a large shape slice for circle (the problme is that it draws
the slices from 1 to N rather than 0 to N-1 with a variable arc).

e.g.
reset, cylinder 0.4 0.4 0.1 0 $1, shapeslice 1000 1, circle 0.4 0 $1

you might want to increase the circular axis shapeslice val for
cylinder as well.

Thanks for the report.
