Not according to what Vincent quoted.

	"If a path data command contains an incorrect set of parameters, then the
given path data command is rendered up to and including the
	last correctly defined path segment"

That says that it will stop as soon as it hits the new operators.  So not
drawn incorrectly - not drawn!
