When doesn't recognize polygons, it is generaly because
you have some lines that doesn't connect in your file. With,
you can identify polygons not closed or lines not connected.

It appears also that if you have a *very* little line alone, th polygon
cannot be closed :

B              CD
 B            C D

The line marked 'C' must be either deleted, either changed in 'L' type
(only 'A' type line are used for polygon topology)
