Hi All,

The text in the spec:


The closePath() method must do nothing if the object's path has no
subpaths. Otherwise, it must mark the last subpath as closed, create a new
subpath whose first point is the same as the previous subpath's first
point, and finally add this new subpath to the path.

Note: If the last subpath had more than one point in its list of points,
then this is equivalent to adding a straight line connecting the last point
back to the first point, thus "closing" the shape, and then repeating the
last (possibly implied) moveTo() call.


Problematic use case:


Should this draw a closed triangle or two connected line segments?
According to the "Note" (or at least my interpretation of it), this should
draw a closed triangle. But it appears that this is not what many browsers
have implemented.  Chrome recently became compliant (or what I think is
compliant), and the change in behavior was reported as a regression.
