For the record, when I hit this wall, I always view what features are
returned by using the ogrinfo commandline utility (and therefore cutting
out the possibilities of problems specific to MapServer). In this case
you can pass expressions through the '-sql' switch in ogrinfo:
ogrinfo PG:"host=127.0.0.1 user=postgres password=postgres
dbname=canada port=5432" -sql "select blah from blah where blah=blah"
