Hi Christer,

 * no need to load the color package
 * the starred version of \pspolygon (and \psframe and so on) fill it 
with black...
   instead use unstarred with [fillstyle=solid,fillcolor=yellow]//
// * you can use \psframe to draw a rectangle
//this looks fine on my system:

\psaxes[tickstyle=top,dy=0, Dy=0.05,dx=0, Dx=0.05,linewidth=0.6pt,labels=none]/%/
\psaxes[tickstyle=top,ticksize=8pt,dy=0, Dy=0.2,Oy=0,dx=0,Dx=0.2,Ox=14.6,linewidth=0.9pt,labels=all]/%/
