Long answer:
This CRS probably didn't exist in the EPSG database v8.5 that was used the 
last time the proj/GDAL derived EPSG database was generated. And I see that 
the ellipsoidal Lamber Cylindrical Equal Area projection method 9835 was also 
unknown of GDAL. I've fixed GDAL to recognize it so next time the proj/GDAL 
EPSG database is regenerated EPSG:6933 will be there.

Short answer:

use "+proj=cea +lon_0=0 +lat_ts=30 +x_0=0 +y_0=0 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs" 
instead of EPSG:6933 in the meantime.

Best regards,
