Hi Janne,

Sure it is! At the moment there are around 20 known and unfixed bugs in proj.4. That’s just the nature of software… You are very welcome to improve the situation and compile a set of test coordinates that we can use in the existing test framework. Also, it would seem that Nathan is working on a fix, so things will probably be less messy in the near future.

I just hope that this messy untested stuff (PJ_isea.c) is not in the official distribution of Proj.4 ?!

Try #2 to the proj mailing list now that I've actually confirmed my email address :)

There is no rush on this.  It was just a dead code complaint by a linter, not a failure seen with actual code.

I'm looking into it.  I'll have an answer later tonight.  Three to four
hours.  Preliminary conclusion is that I had no idea what I was thinking
when I wrote that code, and the code after the return is the right code,
but maybe there's a bug or something that I missed.  My tests don't
exercise that code path.
