I can't comment much without looking at your PDF (upload it somewhere). 
When I wrote "an array of arrays", I mean this from the PDF specification:

"An array of n arrays, each representing a stroked path. Each array 
shall be a series of alternating horizontal and vertical coordinates in 
default user space, specifying points along the path. When drawn, the 
points shall be connected by straight lines or curves in an 
implementation-dependent way."

Maybe you put one coordinate pair in one array, instead of all points of 
a line in one array?

"Array of arrays" means that if you have only one path with 8 points, 
then you have one array with one element, this element is an array with 
16 numbers. To see how an inklist is, open the file from PDFBOX-2583 in
