[Gmsh] Hole in a plate

I'm trying to mesh an IGES surface with a hole in it. Unfortunately the hole
is represented by many small line segments and gmsh tries to divide each line
segment into two even smaller elements when I apply a 2D mesh, no matter what
characteristic length I choose. Is there some way to prevent this?

I've tried changing the "Transfinite->Line" number of points, but it doesn't
 seem to make any difference. Is this because the hole is not on a flat

I'm using the CVS source from 27 September.
