DXF Export Creates Loops in Illustrator

99% of the time when I export standard faces to DXF for use in Illustrator for generating a laser cutting file everything works fine. However, it seems that SW's splines act a little funny when imported into Illustrator (see images for eDrawings vs. Illustrator view of the DXF vector paths).

 

Anyone have a solution to get rid of the loops? I'm working with SW 2012, Win7, Illustrator CS2.
