Version 6 had a problem specific to \[GrayCircle] & \[GraySquare]
which has been fixed for a future release of Mathematica.  You can get
roughly the same behavior by emulating the \[GrayCircle] appearance
with a graphic:

ListPlot[{#, Sin[13 #]} & /@ Range[0, 1, 0.01],
 PlotMarkers ->
  Graphics[{Gray, Disk[], Black, AbsoluteThickness[1], Circle[]},
   ImageSize -> 8]]
