What's the chance of getting a simple test case to demonstrate the problem?

Tilecache probably is not what you want if you have very dynamic tiles.
Or at least a tile cache that is persistent.
Your problem is with tile edge artifacts. It might be possible to draw
on a slightly larger image than the tile, then cut the tile out of it to
avoid some of those, but there are some tile artifacts that you can not
get away from when you draw single tiles, like label positioning and
label thinning over multiple tiles.
For an alternative, you might look to mapscript where you could have
more programmatic control over the rendering and do things like render a
larger image than needed and cut out the tile like I mentioned.
You might also write a bug against mode=tile and see what the developer
response to that might be.
