OK, it's been included in the current CVS source tree, works pretty well
under Linux so far 8-)

mmm, to be honest I'm still able to segfault it sometimes. Seems there's
some floating point exception. However, it's not such a problem since LW
fires it as a separate process, so it doesn't harm the game in itself
(only the map isn't generated), and when running in command line mode
often the solution is just to relaunch it and it works.

Well, I do think most random map are pretty playable. Just my opinion

I also noticed that on your web site you mention that some of your
functions can create "traps". AFAIK LW (at least in its current state, I
mean the CVS one) is able to get rid of those traps and "paint" will
wall whatever zone would not be contiguous with the rest of the map.

Not me 8-) However there's a bunch of Windows LW users, so a binary can
always be usefull, especially when Windows does not comes with no
compiler at all, so users are usually unable to prepare binaries

As you mention this, I'd just like to say to Windows users (Kasper for
instance) that I'm currently almost done with getting a working windows
developpement environment ready, so binaries for 5.6.0pre1 should be
ready soon now. I'd least I'm working on it. This will allow people to
pre-test the stuff before I release it "officially" (nothing's really
official with LW, but well, I try to make releases that work good to
save end-users some trouble).

A side effect of this is that the win32 binary for lwmapgen will also 
be available soon 8-)

Have a nice day,
