It looks like a bug to me.

You could plot the points separately. In Presentations this would be:


f[x_] := x^3/3 - x;
 {Draw[f[x], {x, -3, 3}],
  Point[{#, f[#]}] & /@ {-1, 1.5, 0, 2}},
 Axes -> True]

Or use Plot with Epilog to plot the points.

I have a parasite Meshpoint (at about x=2.2) with the following input:

Plot[(1/3)*x^3 - x, {x, -3, 3}, Mesh -> {{-1, 1.5, 0, 2}}, MeshStyle ->

As I have often these parasits, I really wonder... Can somebody help and say
how I can delete it?
