Hi all,

I appear to be having a slight problem with the calculation of the
Ex_GeographicBoundingBox for the capabilities doc (1.3.0 & 1.1.1) in one of
my services. The projection of the service is 32633 (utm zone 33) and the
bounding box given in a 1.3.0 capabilities doc is correct for the projected

<BoundingBox CRS="EPSG:32633" minx="-566158" miny="6.27807e+06"
maxx="1.37006e+06" maxy="9.43158e+06"/>

However, it gives the Ex_GBB as:


when I've calculated it should be -1.954, 55.4632, 57.037, 80.728

Getcapabilities call is:

I understand reference systems with central meridian's not through Greenwich
used to be a problem but I thought from reading
http://trac.osgeo.org/mapserver/ticket/2578 that this was fixed in the 5.6

This is all using mapserver 5.6.6, but I've also tried it using mapserver
6.1 and this gives another (also wrong) result:


I wonder if it can be a problem that the projected bounds are outside
slightly of the official 32633 grid bounds?
