It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

I could make a web based game, and feed all my graphs to the visitors.

The second figure looks overly familiar; didn't someone recently ask about plotting this same thing? Ah, I was thinking of your own post: (56901)

Consider moving (reposting, then deleting) your answer here: (34554) I believe it is equally applicable, and it would be better placed in a non-duplicate Q&A.

Everyone who voted for my answer or Jens' answer should vote for Michael's earlier answer as it already covered both aspects of the issue.

@Michael I missed that. Looks like you covered everything there already. Now your answer just needs more votes. :-)

Jens, I believe this question is a duplicate. Will your method apply to this example as well?: (34554)

@george2079 Good point! I meant this answer as an illustration of my understanding of the cause, not a general purpose solution.

Thanks for the Accept, but I suggest that you wait at least 24 hours to let everyone around the world have a chance to answer. You may like a different answer more if you don't discourage someone from posting by making the issue appear concluded.

@user5693 A line starting with # is not a comment in Mathematica. Use this format instead: (* comment *). I shall edit your question with this correction now.

It appears that your file is already in Mathematica text (package) format. You can use Get, or Import with format "Package". "Package" will automatically be used if the file has extension .m.
