The problem is effectively related to that enum order. It seems that MapServer 
doesn't use only the enum name but use the enum integer values (determined by 
the enum order) to get the inchesPerUnit values. There is scale/units code in 
4 different files, I would say that a cleanup should be done to avoid such 
problems in the future.

It's now fixed in trunk and backported in branch 5.6. I'd need someone that 
could get the svn branch 5-6 and confirm that the problem is fixed before 
Daniel prepares the MS 5.6.5 release. Changeset: 

My apologies for any inconvenience I caused >:|
