They are well drawn by Ka-Map but they are often truncated at tile boundaries. It happens when the label is too long to be contained by one tile. It really seems like this bug : http://bugzilla.maptools.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1379 . It is marked as resolved for the 0.2 version of Ka-Map but changing the $metaBuffer var (in config.php) doesn't work for me. I have played with the values of the other vars contained in this file but I was unsuccessful.
Does your mapfile have "PARTIALS OFF" on your label layers? This is
probably important: it prevents mapsever from trying to draw off the
edge of the map. If this isn't the case, ka-Map won't draw them
correctly regardless, because its edge label prevention is simply not
taken into account.
I'd recommend trying that, and if it doesn't work, report back.
