[whatwg] [html5] Canvas arc() as part of subpath

According to the arc() definition, "The [arc] start point is added to the
list of points of the subpath and the current position is joined to that
point by a straight line." However, Firefox 1.5 and Safari 2.0.2 do not
follow this rule unless there is drawing or an explicit moveTo() prior to
the arc(). This should not be necessary, as according to the definition
of beginPath() a) "When the context is created, a call to beginPath() is
implied," and b) "The beginPath() method resets the list of subpaths to an
empty list, and calls moveTo() with the point (0,0)."
See http://timaltman.com/temp/canvas.html for a test case.
