Do you define named styles in your deegree wms configuration? At the
moment, mapbender is not yet able to handle named styles. Since the
SLD definiton is done in deegree, I don't see how mapbenders getmap
requests could interfere with the rendering.

At the moment, digitizing in mapbender works only with a correctly
configured transactional WFS (e.g. Geoserver, maybe deegree). This
means you need to load your WFS-T in mapbender, then configure the
featuretypes you want to be able to digitize to or edit.
Have a look at the complete description at
I don't know if deegree supports transactional WFS on a shape datastore.

HTH, cheers,
