This seems to come from libart:

   art_svp_wind.c: fprintf (stderr, "colinear!\n");
   art_svp_wind.c: fprintf (stderr, "colinear!\n");
   art_svp_wind.c:  fprintf (stderr, "x_order_2: colinear!\n");

I'm not really familiar with libart.  I think (so: not sure) it has to
do with drawing boxes the wrong way around.  Anti-clockwise vs. clockwise.

Tobi will know.  Tobi?
