Yeah, I saw that documentation too but could not reproduce the supposed
behaviour. The only way I have found so far requires splitting up the
CSV files.

Could you please point me to the *jmx file you used last year? In the
mapserver folder, I found a whole bunch so I am not sure which was used.
Since I don't want to get responses, but only to generate requests I can
generate bogus .cvs files, the values are unimportant.
