    It looks like the shadow boundary hits the same spot as the boundary of two displacements. Take a look here with your "lightmap" camera view. Each square will dictate the size of a block of shadow. When it reaches the egde there, it is not going to "blend" the shadow, one brush registers shadow, then right next to it, the other brush doesn't.

    Try decreasing your lightmaps scale (although not the best of choices). OR change your env_light pitch angle.

    Displacements are some what prone to these light bugs because of how they render differently from normaly world geometry.
