This is a bug in FaceForm that is specific to GrayLevel[0].

If you want your graphics to have this structure you could use 
GrayLevel[0.0] or RGBColor[0,0,0] in place of GrayLevel[0] as a workaround.

I've made a fix to our internal development version which will appear 
in a future release.  Thank you for reporting this issue and I 
apologize for the inconvenience.
