i had that problem, yes...

my simple solution was the following:

use: latex --> ps (dvips) --> pdf (ps2pdf)

of course, there probably is a more "aesthetic" solution...but the above
solves the problem

(in my case, actually the whole xy picture gets totally screwed up if i use
dvipdf directly)

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
