Ogr2ogr should be returning complete features with the full geometry for
all features whose MBR (minimum bounding rectangle) intersects the rectangle
you specify in the -spat argument.  It never clips, but a feature should
not need to be completely contained in the query rectangle.

If you actually want to perform geometry operations such as clip to a bound,
I would suggest you look at using the geometry operations in PostGIS.

PS. This question would likely be best asked on the gdal-dev mailing list.
