Fixed in Trunk, and added this combination to the unit-test.

It will be a proper strategy in the future. The box-in-box for cartesian
is trivial, but for spherical it is quite interesting. Not only because
of the dateline, but also because a box with same longitude-coordinates
as another box may still fall completely inside. Currently, a
spherical-box in spherical-box will fail to compile, cartesian succeeds.

Thanks again for the report.
