[ka-Map-users] Clipping of street names

Hi Daniel,

Hmmmm. Something is definitely strange, I think that something else may 
be wrong with my configuration, as the smaller the metaBuffer setting 
the more street names are being clipped. (See the example gif - this 
uses a metaBuffer of 10 - thjis was generated with mapserver 4.6.1 and 
kamaps 0.1.1)

I have noticed that the problem seems to exclusively exist when 
mapserver tries to print out another copy of the street name. (see 
attach gif - "Brandon Street" prints twice and the second label is 
clipped" )

Have I configured something wrong in mapserver ?
