I have done further investigation, in order to upgrade the map using ka-map
you need to follow the next steps: 

1)	Stop Apache.
2)	Change the mapfile.
3)	Clean the cache on the server (ie C:\ms4w\tmp\ms_tmp\kacache).
4)	Start Apache.

These steps are necessary for Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, but for
IE you need an extra step you need to clean “Temporary Internet Files” from
IE --> Tools --> Internet Options etc, this step needs to be done between 1)
and 4) I don't understand why but definitely need to be done.

IE Temporary Internet Files contains copy of files like imagesi, media etc
which are stored in C:\Document and Setting e blah blah blah for improving
performances in the browser, bu the browser should understand when the page
is changed (though I think the problem is only in the tiled images) and if
changed upgrade it.

Unfortunately the way it is ka-map is not usable for IE. To be honest I
don't know if there is a bug in the API, in the back-end code or there is a
limit in IE .... I am not a web developer and I haven't done investigations
in that sense.

If anybody know a little bit more it would be appreciated .....
