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,


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's a graphical illustration

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


When I use AxesOrigin->{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,
