    Normally, when you create a BezierPath using beginpath and drawpath it takes the curent fill and stroke settings from the drawing context. If you create a BezierPath by calling its constructor, it doesn't. If you dow want to use the currently set fill and stroke color, you can use inheritFromContext.

    All NodeBox drawing functions, including drawpath, use inheritFromContext internally. (For example rect)
