That isn't my reading of his algorithm.

You are probably right.

I took cristoforo's description of the algorithm -- which includes this passage "moving randomly 1 to 6 cells" -- as correct. Looking back to the originator's code, I do not know where than came from, but I didn't look very hard now, or at all before posting.

there isn't the possibility of moving diagonally.

Hm. It depends how you interpret the phrase: moving randomly 1 to 6 cells, (up, down, left or right),, that not quite the same as "not diagonally". I took to mean that move 5 UP and 1 LEFT was a valid move. Hence I came up with my "13 x 13 diamond pattern" and 1:84:

......X...... .....XXX..... ....XXXXX.... ...XXXXXXX... ..XXXXXXXXX.. .XXXXXXXXXXX. XXXXXX.XXXXXX .XXXXXXXXXXX. ..XXXXXXXXX.. ...XXXXXXX... ....XXXXX.... .....XXX..... ......X......
