xypic and dvipdf

Dear Kristoffer,

I am using (still) your excellent XyPic package, but I have a problem 
getting things to work with dvipdf. I am using LaTeX 2e and generate 
pdf with dvipdf, but the frames around xygraph objects does not show, 

     *+[F-,]\txt{$1$\\$0$} \ar[r] & \txt{$2$\\$+$} \ar[r] & \txt{$3$\\ 

does not give what I want it (no frames from *+[F-,] that is). I am 
actually trying to draw a singly linked or doubly linked list, with 
the nodes split up in two boxes like this

    |      |
    |------|   ---->
    |      |  <-----  etc  and then maybe a terminator     ---|
    --------                                                  |

The reason for drawing this is in ASCII is that I thought that 
perhaps someone else has already attempted
to visualise such linked lists or even UML-like boxes like the one 

Best Wishes,

little bit of rewriting (but not so much)
