I have some shapefiles in "World Cylindrical Equal Area (Lambert) projection". The .prj reads:

PROJCS["World_Cylindrical_Equal_Area",GEOGCS["GCS_WGS_1984",DATUM["D_WGS_1984",SPHEROID["WGS_
1984",6378137.0,298.257223563]],PRIMEM["Greenwich",0.0],UNIT["Degree",0.0174532925199433]],PR
OJECTION["Cylindrical_Equal_Area"],PARAMETER["False_Easting",0.0],PARAMETER["False_Northing",
0.0],PARAMETER["Central_Meridian",-160.0],PARAMETER["Standard_Parallel_1",0.0],UNIT["Meter",1
.0]]

In consequence, I wrote the following mapfile:

and the following openlayers code:

 <html>
  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../lib/openlayers/OpenLayers.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">

      var map;

      function init() {
      map = new OpenLayers.Map({div:'myMap', allOverlays:true});

      var countries = new OpenLayers.Layer.MapServer("Countries", "/cgi-bin/mapserv?MAP=/var/www/ex/mapTest.map", {layers:'countries'});

      map.addLayers([countries]);
      var mapSwitcher = new OpenLayers.Control.LayerSwitcher();
      map.zoomToMaxExtent();
      }

    </script>
  </head>

  <body onload="init()">
    <div id="myMap" ></div>
  </body>

</html>

Unfortunately, the displayed image is completely messed-up:

mapserver messes-up a CEA-projected shapefile

Can someone find what is incorrect in my codes?
