Check the documentation on the "metaTile" it requires having PIL installed but that is not really a big hassle.

We are using Mapserver to produce tiles for a web application, using Tilecache as the caching mechanism.
When we were building the system, we figured out that tiles requested does not fit well side by side (the roads of one tile does not fit the prolongation of the same road in the next tile). To eliminate this issue, we had to issue an extra 10 pixels (around the whole tile) request to Mapserver and then cut them.
Then another problem arose: we could not make this with the labels because they appeared cut in one tile and there was no prolongation of it on the next tile. The solution was to divide it into different layers: one for the roads with the 10 pixels buffer and another for the labels without buffer. This has the impact of duplicating the total number of images.
Anyone known an alternate solution for this problem?
Isn't Mapserver capable of serving images that fit well side by side?
Thanks in advance!
