This is the correct --=and expected--- behavior since Mathematica 6.0, 
for a ";" semicolon prevent the display of results returned by 
expressions and graphics are no longer side-effects: graphics outputs 
are the result of evaluation, so they can be turn on or off as any other

No, see above for explanation. Also, to display graphics in coupound 
expressons, you must use Print[].

Not sure about that one.

Anyway, either of below examples will display both graphs in separate 
output cells.

<< ComputationalGeometry`;
nodes = Table[Random[], {20}, {2}]; 

<< ComputationalGeometry`;
nodes = Table[Random[], {20}, {2}]; 
Print[DiagramPlot[nodes]] ;
