[OpenSCAD] Creating DXF file with round shapes

I use OpenSCAD to export dxf files that I need for laser cutting. When I
create circles a dxf file with multiple line segments per circle is
generated by OpenSCAD. This causes problems on the laser cutter that
"perceives" this a multiple independent lines.

As an example: projection() cylinder(h=12, r=80); generates 30 line

Is there a way around this within OpenSCAD or is it just the way that
OpenSCAD generates dxf files?

I use OpenSCAD version 2015.03-3 on OSX (10.10).
