[pstricks] Cannot get a color. One line is not drawn.

The graph is meant to produce one horisontal and one vertical axis; both 
with annotated tick marks.
Within the domain of the axes I wish to draw a yellow rectangle.

I use latex, dvips and then ps2pdf from the latest TeXLive CD.

The result seen in the Acrobat Reader is:

1. Horisontal axis is perfect.
2. The vertical axis is not shown; only the tickmarks and the annotation.
3. The colour of the rectangel is black, not yellow.

Please show me what errors I do in order to get a bad y axis and no colour.
