If I'm not mistaken, it doesn't matter what value.var is when fun.aggregate is length. Hence, I often forget to set it explicitly in such cases and the warning message comes across as unnecessary noise:

DT = data.table(a = sample(10, 1000, TRUE), b = rep(1:5, 200))
dcast(DT, a ~ b, fun.aggregate = length)

Using 'b' as value column. Use 'value.var' to override
