I immediately suspected Combinatorica`IsomorphicQ. I was able to  
convince myself, however, that IsomorphicQ is symmetric and  
transitive over the set of 21 graphs produced by diagrams[3]. Do we  
ask any more of a test for equivalence? If not, then suspicion  
reverts to Tally, which is yielding too many results. I've no answer.
