This is obviously not a GEOS issue, but should have been sent to the
maintainer of the rgeos package, that is to me. I have resolved the ticket
as invalid.

The identity of "philae" is unknown and untraceable - please contact me 
directly including the test script, which wasn't attached to the ticket.

A minor leakage of 40 bytes isn't a big deal, and its origin isn't clear.
