Bug or feature ?

Please, try this with Mathematica (5.2):

<< Graphics`Graphics`

PolarPlot[Sin[t]^2 Cos[t]^2, {t, 0, 2Pi}]

PolarPlot[Sin[t]^2 Cos[t]^2, {t, 0, 21}]

compare the two graphics.

In the second (t is between zero and twentyone)
I got a spurios segment between 3rd and 4th quadrants.

Can you tell me why ?

(Btw, I got this just playing for one minute or two
with PolarPlot. The "21" was a typo...)
