It seems to be deliberate. In src/main/graphics.c:GCircle we have
ir = radius/Rf_gpptr(dd)->ipr;
ir = (ir > 0) ? ir : 1;
so that a circle of radius zero is set to a positive radius. What I don't
know is whether this is needed -- perhaps some devices won't draw
zero-radius circles correctly, for example.
