To which Motl adds:
Bohmian trajectories never cross the z=0 plane – the horizontal line in the middle of the picture, in this convention. A particle in the upper half stays in the upper half, and the same holds for the lower half. There's clearly no sense in which this correlation exists in quantum mechanics – or the real world – and this unphysical feature of Bohmian mechanics is also exploited by ESSW to show that the Bohmian paths are "surreal".

Can yuou supply the wiki reference, newolder? I can't find the page with that dubious graphic on it, only one with the correct version of the 2-slit interference of waves: Double slit experiment

EDIT: AFAIAC, this could still be seen as a pilot wave model, just the correct version of it.
