st: graph line, line(...)

How can I remove the slice outlines from a pie-chart? -help graph pie- says:
    line(line_options) specifies the look of the line used to outline
the slices.  See [G-3] line_options, but
        ignore option lpattern(), which is not allowed for pie charts.

But line(lwidth(none)) , line(lstyle(none)) and line(lcol(none)) are
all ignored: I still get outlines.
Here's my command (with irrelevant options removed):

graph pie count,
	line(lwidth(none))                       // THIS DOESN'T WORK
	by(season, legend(pos(3)))

In passing: it seems odd to need two legend() options, but
legend(cols(1)) is ignored if placed inside by(), and legend(pos(3))
is ignored outside.
