The solution below works just fine. In a separate post I offered a method that uses only PolarPlot. It seems to me that one should not have to convert to cartesian coordiantes at all in order to do this kind of filling. The underlying trouble, of course, is that Mathematica does not currently include a Filling option for PolarPlot or ParametricPlot.
