Hi John,
We had similar issues, it's entirely related to the tiling methodology and how MapServer is rendering those pesky labels.  I changed the config.php settings for tile height and width to:
$tileWidth = 400;
$tileHeight = 400;
cleared my cache and recreated the maps.  Looks a lot better now.  Play around with larger or smaller values and see if that helps.

Hope this helps you out.
