I presume that you did clear the ka-map cache and your browser cache to 
make sure this was not a caching issue?

If you did, then perhaps there's a bug in MapServer's handling of the 
edge buffer setting for some specific cases. Unfortunately I don't have 
time to dig into this now. Has anyone come accross this same issue with 
MapServer 4.6.1?
