new Graph function + combinatorica: various problems

I'm experiencing some problems in combining the functionalities of
combinatorica and the built-in functions for graphs.

In fact loading combinatorica shadows the built-in Graph function, and
makes its use impossible. But while I need some of the functions in
the combinatorica package (minimum/maximum spanning tree), i prefer
the graphic and "lexical" representation of the built-in Graph[].

How do I "save" Graph[] when I load combinatorica, or how can I make
it come back?

Also (and this looks weird!), when i use ToCombinatoricaGraph[] (in
GraphUtilites package) to convert a graph, the resulting object can be
processed by MaximumSpanningTree[], yielding a correct result, but not
by MinimumSpanningTree[] which returns something like:


...not even a combinatorica graph object.

Thanks for your help!
