[Chameleon] Maptips and PostGIS

I have done some more investigations regarding the problem of PostGIS
layers not recognized by the Maptips widget. It works fine with shapes
but not with PostGIS. Until now, I found that the getShape function:
$oShape = $oLayer->getShape($nTile, 0 );
in LayerAttributes.php does not return an object if the layer is a
PostGIS layer. Therefore, the layer does not appear in the selection dialog.
If I use $oLayer->getItems() to retrieve the attributes of the layers,
they at least appear in the "Configure MapTips", but nothing happens
within the map. Might this be specific to the development version of
Mapserver/MapScript (see below for the configuration)?
By the way, clicking <OK> in the "Configure MapTips" executes the
currently active navigation function, e.g. ZoomIn or ZoomOut. Is this a
misconfiguration or a bug?
Finally, my configuration:
Windows XP Pro
Postgres 8 nativ Windows
PHP 5.0.3 (modul)
Mapserver and Mapscript 4.5 (development version from MapTools.org).
