I've been test the ogr2ogr utility program to create shapefiles based on
spatial extents.  The problem I'm having is that the resulting shapefiles
contains features beyound the defined extents.  I've attached a jpeg to
illustrate the problem where the box is the extents purple polygons are the

ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" -spat 610400 4819000 610500 4819100 output2.shp
