I suspect this is a misunderstanding on your part of the mechanics of
paths. A few screenshots would help a lot if you could do that?

I presume the area in question is the area of overlap between those two paths.
This is normal -- it is in fact the same mechanic that allows you to
have, say, a hollow circle.
If it's not what you want, I suggest exporting to Inkscape and using
the Union operator to make a path that is the union of those paths.
