[R] Problem with understanding output of Cox model

Hi all,  

I am using a 'tricked' Cox Hazard regression model for discrete choice habitat modelling.
However, I'm having a hard time understanding the meaning of the first line the following part of the summary() output:  

Rsquare= 0.307 (max possible= 0.475 )
Likelihood ratio test= 91.8 on 12 df, p=2.23e-14 Wald test = 26.3 on 12 df, p=0.00977
Score (logrank) test = 58.6 on 12 df, p=4.03e-08  

Does anyone know how I can read the 'max possible' R-square? What does it signify?
Is it some kind of quasi-correlation; in which case I read it that I have explained 65% (i.e., 0.307/0.475) of the variation?  

I hope someone can help on this.
Thanks in advance,  

Cheers Roel
