[Ipe-discuss] fill closed line after grouping separate pieces

you should not do grouping but either "Compose paths" or "Join Lines"
Difference is
     Compose is doing what you would expect the grouping to to, allows 
you to fill it with color.  Lines that are joint with compose can be 
decomposed just like ungrouped.

     Join lines you do with two lines that have at least one point in 
common. It connects them and makes one path of two paths.  When you do 
edit path on the new one, you can edit both.

You reach the compose and join with content sensitive menue (third 
button) after selection.

hope it explains
