both v.5.2 and v.6 accept Automatic to represent one number if this i
necessary to give meaning to the expression. Mathematica reads in the
given case reads {1,Automatic} and converts it to {1,3} as range for
the vertical axis. The two versions differ however in how to display
the horizontal axis. V.5.2 reads no information as 'Automatic', while
v.6 - given that information is provided on how to display the
vertical axes, reads no information on the horizontal axis as 'None'.
Not necessary better or worse than before, but may be more consistent.
it has just been changed. In this case you therefore need to rephrase
the option value to {{0,1},Automatic}.
