Problem With AxesOrigin

Hello -- sometimes when I plot a function  Mathematica decides to put
the origin of the coordinate system in a spot where I don't want it. 
The natural fix seems to be the option AxesOrigin.  For instance,

Plot[ugly[x],{x,a,b},AxesOrigin->{0,0}]


Simple enough.  However, there are times when Mathematica appears to be
trying to place the origin of the coordinate system where I want it,
but it doesn't print out the axis lines near the region of my origin of
choice.  It's as if it recognizes where I want the origin, but it
doesn't want to print out the axes in the normal manner.

It's hard to explain in words...here's a graphical illustration

Unwanted Origin = {1,1} (Mathematica's initial choice):

       |
       |
       |
       |
       |__________    
     (1,1)


When I use AxesOrigin->{0,0}


       |
       |
       | 
       |  
       
           __________
     (0,0)


Note how Mathematica curiously omits segments of the axis lines near the
origin of my choice.

Has anyone else out there experienced this?  How may I remedy it?

Thanks a million,

AC
