[OpenLayers-Users] Markers and Vector-Features displaced after

Thanks alot for your reply!
I think I've managed to track down this problem to my own mapserver... I tested with the MetaCarta-Mapserver in Untiled-Mode and both, locations and markers stayed fixed on their positions, even after zooming and dragging like a maniac.
Think our MapServer needs some reconfiguration... Are their any examples for .map-Files available (perhaps the ones you have used for the live examples)?
Again, thanks alot and best regards,

Vectors on top of Google are not supported in the 2.4 release. In a the next release, they will be supported via the GoogleMercator layer.

Doesn't look like it. We used to have an open ticket, but the GoogleMercator ticket subsumed it, and I never documented it well enough. I'm sorry about that.

Vector features are well supported outside of the commecial layers :) As I said, in the next release, this will be fixed, but at the moment, you're out of luck for vector support on top of commercial layers.
However, the untiled thing is new to me. Sharing an example with the list would help accelerate debugging on that one.
