Thanks to all who responded.

With their help (and that of the LaTeX graphics companion) I have
isolated the problem: It appears related only to the DVI driver.  I
tried different driver options, none are satisfactory (although they
fail on different graphs).  PDF files appear to be fine, so I am
sticking with them for now.

However, it would be nice if the DVI viewer worked properly, for two
reasons: First, especially as a newbie, I do a lot of drafts, and the
DVI comes on screen noticeably faster than the PDF files.  Second, some
coauthor may prefer something other than PDF files, since they seem to
be a lot smaller.  The MIS people where I work also frown on sending and
receiving large files via e-mail, and some of the PDF files are already
getting big.

Thanks again, and, if anyone has more info, I would appreciate it
