Mapserver Postgis driver problem with EWKB

Hi list,

Mapserver postgis driver unable to read geometries with embedded SRID.
(For example after using ogr2ogr with -a_srs parameter to load data into a
postgis table).

I haven't found a documentation about postgis EWKB representation but it
seems that it stores extra information in the upper bits of the geometry
type (eg. SRID presence flag) which have't taken into account by
mapserver, so the geometries will not displayed.

Could anyone forward me to the right direction solving this problem?
