This isn't the Digital Field of View method, there is nothing stated in the definition to disallow a LOV just because it touches exactly the point of a wall tile above in one place and below in another.

You're probably right about the dot in the middle, although it should be noted that my diagram is not 100% accurate and should be checked with maths before being taken as gospel.

Code:
@#?????

###.#
    .
     ? ?

        ?.?
Probably the middle dot shouldn't be there - as shown above.
