Disregard my message:  I managed to figure it out.  panel.lines  
insists on x and y rather than y ~ x  or y (x are just discrete steps).

The question that remains is whether it is possible to draw to a panel  
directly using the normal plotting functions in cases where only one  
panel is shown.  The latest version of Hmisc seems to disallow this  
(error: "plot.new has not been called yet"), and with earlier versions  
I had said problems about ablines appearing in the wrong locations.
