I get the same plot in both: In[3]:= $Version Out[3]= 8.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (October 5, 2011) and In[3]:= $Version Out[3]= 9.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (November 20, 2012) I notice with the default coloring and default PointSize it might be easy to miss the point being plotted since the GridLines specification has the grid lines crossing where the point is plotted. Try opts = {Frame -> True, PlotStyle -> {Red, PointSize[.02]}, GridLines -> {{1}, {1}}}; ListPlot[{{1, 1}}, opts] just to make it more apparent the point is actually being plotted.
