at first, a shadow to a _line_ doesn't really make sense!

The shadow is build  as a copy of the current path, which
is filled and then used as an underlying overlay to the original
closed path whith the difference of psk at shadowsize. This is
the _same behaviour_ for all objects. A line cannot be filled, the
reason why you cannot get what you might expect to see.
