st: Twoway-graph appears different in version 11 and version 12

I can't find the reason why the following -twoway- syntax produces graphs that look vastly different in Stata 12 as opposed to Stata 11 (in Stata 11.2 it appears as intended whereas in Stata 12.1 it does not).

Note: If you run the complete demonstration below, two files (graphs created by my own Stata versions 11.2 and 12.1) will be copied into your temp-directory and erased afterwards (but it will not overwrite files that exist already) - I hope the longer line containing "title("Verhaltensprobleme ..." will not get broken in the email sent:

* --- Start Stata demonstration ----

global testurl = "";
use "${testurl}testdat.dta", clear

twoway (scatter behavior gewalt if black==0, mcolor(blue) ///
                msymbol(circle_hollow) jitter(2) jitterseed(1)) ///
       (scatter behavior gewalt if black==1, mcolor(red)  ///

       (line pr_beh gewalt if black==0, sort lcolor(blue)) ///

* Copy demo .gph-files into tempdir:
local pwdir = c(pwd)
local tmpdir = c(tmpdir)
cd "`tmpdir'"
copy "${testurl}L11_version11.gph" "L11_version11.gph"
copy "${testurl}L11_version12.gph" "L11_version12.gph"
cd "`pwdir'"

/* Graph created with Stata version 11.2
  (Stata/SE 11.2 for Windows (32-bit) Born 16 Feb 2012): */
graph use "`tmpdir'/L11_version11.gph", name("L11_version11", replace)
/* Graph created with Stata version 12.1
  (Stata/SE 12.1 for Windows (64-bit x86-64) Revision 20 Jun 2012): */
graph use "`tmpdir'/L11_version12.gph", name("L11_version12", replace)

* Erase demo .gph-files:
local tmpdir = c(tmpdir)
erase "`tmpdir'/L11_version11.gph"
erase "`tmpdir'/L11_version12.gph"

* --- End Stata demonstration ----
