yes, exactly.

I had a lot of problems with this too. Obviously MB doesn't upload cap-docs
if they contain Umlaute or some other "peculiar" content. What I also change
are my local url's. I always use IP instead of servernames, also in the MB

I have never seen something like that. But probably this code-snippet may
help you, look for the apropriate position in your cap-doc:

      <!--All supported EPSG projections:-->
      <!-- I have just two projections -->

      <!-- I copy & paste the following values from the geoserver-gui: -->

      <LatLonBoundingBox minx="7.44" miny="47.53" maxx="10.53"
      <BoundingBox SRS="EPSG:31467" minx="3388368.75" miny="5266823.0"
maxx="3610189.0" maxy="5517400.0"/>

      <!-- Start of layer definitions -->
      <Layer queryable="1">

> Service is offered by Geoserver 1.5.4.

I use MB 2.4.2 and GS 1.5.4

I hope this helps!
