I played around with this for a while with no success at all. I'd suggest posting the question on the ggplot2 newsgroup in Google Groups

> p <- ggplot(ddf, aes(x = x, y = y))
> p + geom_point(aes(colour="Observations", shape="Observations")) +
> stat_summary(aes(colour = "Means", shape ="Means"),
> fun.y = mean, fun.ymin = min, fun.ymax = max,
> geom = "point") +
> geom_hline(aes(yintercept = mean(y), linetype = "Overall Mean"),
> show_guide = TRUE)
> I tried to map the linetype in geom_point (and stat_summary) to NULL and
