I did some simulations: http://aleph.se/andart2/space/galactic-duck-and-cover/
If one takes directionality into account the risk does not seem to be as dramatic as in the paper. Or rather, the variance goes way up: stars near the galactic centre are at risk, but there is a fair fraction that are never hit.
