When you apply FullGraphics to a graphics object, all labels and such become text primitives. Text primitives, as with all other primitives, must lie inside of the PlotRange. FullGraphics doesn't do a good job of setting the PlotRange appropriately on the resulting output, so it's best to add the option PlotRange->All to the Show command used to display your FullGraphics result.

No problem. Hope this helps.

Bzz. I appreciate your frustration but I still love Mathematica. BTW, if you have a registered copy of Mathematica, this is a question Wolfram's tech support group could have answered without too much trouble.
