[mapserver-users] Transparent lines at -180 when rendering

I thought of that too, but even the Introduction to MapServer page (
http://mapserver.org/introduction.html) uses -180 -90 180 90 to render the
BlueMarble data at full extent so that seems like it shouldn't be the case.
I'll keep on testing and see what I can come up with.
