> The recently committed WithinPrefixTreeFilter can sometimes match a false-positive due
to the grid approximation technique.  Some of this is normal.  But if an indexed shape has
any of its leaf detail levels "simplified" (removed) up to a higher level, then a false-positive
match can occur that is a little too eager when one of those cells that were simplified-away
don't intersect the query shape, and thus shouldn't be considered a match for this predicate.

> Marking as "Minor" because it should be quite rare, and when it does occur, the answer
(a match) will usually appear close-enough due to the grid approximation that it's not a totally
inaccurate answer.  I found this problem via extensive randomized testing.  I want to fix
it because it should make my new tests pass :-)
