I am using a Mac IIsi with Mathematica 2.0 - the standard
version.  I was demonstrating graphics primitives to my 
class and there was a distinct difference in the outputs from

> pt=Map[Point[{#,#^2}]&,Table[Random[],{20}]];
> ax=Line[{{1,0},{0,0},{0,1}}];
> nm=Text["y = x^2",{0.2,0.9}];
> {pt,ax,nm}//Graphics//Show
> {nm,pt,ax}//Graphics//Show

In the latter output, all points in pt are connected to pt[[1]].
