Hum, the posted code works fine (i.e. no warning nor error messages are
issued) with Mathematica 6.0.1. I have uploaded the following pdf on my
web site so you can check the graph produced by your version against

(Sorry, I am away from my machine with version 5.2 installed, so I
cannot investigate further.)
