Is there anybody using package maps, available at

I have installed it (version  maps_0.1-3.tar.gz wich seems to be latest, on
R 1.5.1, linux), but whatever I do, I get a segfault.  Discussion in the
mailing list suggests that the package is not finished yet but is still
usable, at least on some platforms.  Does anybody has experience with
similar problems, e.g. as

> library(maps)
> map()
