I am not sure to understand the problem, i.e. what happens with qgis
server that does not with the regular map canvas ?

But to answer your question, there is already a margin taken around the
map extent :

This is completely arbitrary (x5), but this is just to cheat the concept
of an "inverted" geometry that does not really exist in QGIS. So we can
bump up the factor to say x10 ... and it will just translate the problem
a bit further ...

The solution proposed by Nyall (adding the possibility to have an
infinite distance if I understood correctly) is better I think.
