Other have answered about creating a selection form the path and filling
the selection, preferably on a distinct layer.
But even if you had a continuous line the plain-bucket fill would not
give the expected result. Used that way it either leaves a faint space
along the line, or gives it a jagged edge. The reason is that the edge
of the line is made of anti-aliasing pixels, that either have a color
which is a blend of the line color and the background color, or are
partially transparent if the line is on a transparent layer. Then the
bucket-fill in 'normal' mode always either completely paints the pixels
(jagged edge) or doesn't paint them at all (space) .
If the line is on a transparent layer you can use the bucket-fill in
"behind" mode. In behind mode the painting only applies to whatever
transparency is left in a pixel. If you produced the line from a path,
make a selection from it and fill it. Otherwise, use the wand to make a
rough selection on the background, then "grow" that selection to include
the edge pixels of the line, then bucket-fill.
