Oh shoot! I read the online help file 3 times and missed this last night. It must have been my son threatening me and my powerbook with a spoon of yogurt that was distracting. Thanks.

The -exclude0- option seems to force graph dot to respect the ylabel option.
Example:

graph dot (mean) mpg, over(rep78) linetype(dot) ylabel(15(1)30) exclude0
