The "text-spacing" settings below 
should control that.  When I was testing it I adjusted it up and down 
until the spacing was about right.  I was using TileMill at that point 
to test changes so it worked with Mapnik v2 and am now using it with 
Mapnik v3, so it shouldn't be a Mapnik version problem.  With TileMill 
(or Kosmtik) style changes should apply and be displayed immediately.

Other possibilities would be some sort of tile caching issue, but you've 
no doubt already looked into that?  Maybe just change the name to 
"something else" to make absolutely sure that a new name is rendered, 
but still too infrequently.

Best Regards,
