I noticed thatTWikiDraw Plugin does not handle hierachical Webs and also is not nice with non WikiWord topics, which it should allow IMHO.

Suggested Solution

In TWikiDrawPlugin.pm you find this code:

    my $map = TWiki::Func::readFile($mapFile);
    # Unashamed hack to handle Web.TopicName links
    $map =~ s/href=\"((\w+)\.)?(\w+)(#\w+)?\"/&_processHref($2,$3,$4,$web)/ge;
    $map = TWiki::Func::expandCommonVariables( $map, $topic );
    $map =~ s/%MAPNAME%/$mapname/g; 

I suggest changing the regexp to:

     $map =~ s/href=\"(($TWiki::regex{webNameRegex})\.)?([^"#]+)(#$TWiki::regex{wikiWordRegex})?\"/&_processHref($2,$3,$4,$web)/ge;

Sorry if this is not the correct place or style to report this issue
