The problem arises because DIGRAPH layout has not been implemented in
McCLIM.  Tree layout is all that has been done.  Until such a time as
this has been fixed, we should probably change format-graph-from-roots
to toss an error if it is called with an unsupported layout method.

I see from your example code that you're trying to draw a tree.  Give
tree as layout method and I believe you'll be ok.

Hm.  I know that I reported this earlier.  I guess we never got around
to fixing it.  It's a pretty easy fix of just turning a single root
into a list and then calling format-graph-from-roots, IIRC.
