Noticed strange behaviour of Export[] when saving graphics to EPS. Here is an example figure I am exporting:

fig =
 Show[
  ListPolarPlot[
   Table[{a, .9}, {a, 0, 2 Pi, .001}], 
   PlotRange -> {{0, 1.1}, {0, 1.1}}, GridLines -> Automatic, 
   PlotStyle -> PointSize[.005]],

  Graphics[
   Inset[
    ListPolarPlot[Table[{a, .1}, {a, 0, 2 Pi, .001}], Axes -> False, 
     PlotStyle -> PointSize[.05]],
    {.4, .4}]
   ]
  ]

The exported figure does not look fine upon a close look --- horizontal grid lines seem to be rasterised: zoom into the figure 1

If I now apply GridLinesStyle -> Thick, the problem disappears: zoom into the figure 2

Any ideas why that happens? I use Mathematica for MacOS v. 11.0.1.0.

Can anyone with MMA v11 reproduce the issue?

GrdidLines GridLines make figure exported to EPS locally bitmap (?!)
