Subject: [geometry] distance and comparable_distance

I am using the distance and comparable_distance to calculate the distance
between a point and linestring in Cartesian coordinate system, I got the
same value (the distance is not 1.0). From the document, the
comparable_distance is the square distance and distance is the real
distance, am I wrong?
