Mesh casting texture-shadows to BSP world geometry

I'm just experimenting using BSP scenes and shadows, I already learn that setFarClipDistance doesn't work with stencil-based approach (I see the explanation in forums) and I'm guessing if I can use texture-based shadows and BSP.
I'm working on BSP example (or BSP_Collision) enabling a Spotlight (as Omni lights doesn't work as stated in Ogre SDK docs) but the shadow disappear.
While using BSP world geometry is stencil shadows available only?

Thanks.

Yes - texture shadows require a re-rendering of the receiving geometry which BSPSceneManager does not currently support for world geometry.
