On windows, according to postgis_full_version() it was GEOS="2.0.0".

On linux it was geos-1.0.0 so I'll upgrade that tomorrow too.

Both versions returned true for:

  select intersects('BOX3D(-1 -1 -1, 1 1 -2)'::box3d, 
                    'BOX3D(-1 -1  1, 1 1  2)'::box3d);

On the windows machine I used the pre-compiled binary form dcmms
that was called "postgis-setup-0.9.0-1.exe" yet 
postgis_full_version() tells me it's "POSTGIS="0.8.2".   Hmm.
Guess I'll need to learning how to compile something with windows.
If I figure out how to use a complie on wndows, I'll try GEOS2.0.1 
there as well.

For the Linux system it was 0.8.2.  I'm downloading 0.9.0 now... hope to 
try tomorrow.

That is quite possible.  It would also explain another long-ago posting
I made where I never was able to create a simple testcase for a backend

As always, thanks much for all the help!
