Thanks! Switching to ListLinePlot made a huge difference. Please post your comment so that I can accept it.

comment How to embed graphic-element-specific metadata within a Graphics object?
@rm-rf: also, the Mathematica approach is far more specific than the approach I had in mind, namely, to associate metadata with individual elements, irrespective of whether the downstream use of it is based on tooltips or anything else. For example, a different interactive functionality would be one that lights up certain points depending on their associated metadata. This has nothing to do with tooltips. (I've added this example to my post.)

@rm-rf: what's orthogonal is the idea of wrapping the object (line, point, whatever) in the metadata, whereas my first instinct would have made it a property of the object...

@belisarius: thanks, that's what I was looking for. Mathematica's way of doing this sort of thing is, as usual, orthogonal to the first approach that comes to my mind, but it is always interesting...

comment How to examine the structure of Graphics objects
...and got several replies, but it was the same problem all over again: these solutions work fine with simple examples but fail with the trees I want to visualize. What's worse, they all fail in utterly baffling ways, and this bizarreness of behavior greatly cooled my enthusiasm for this line of attack.

comment How to examine the structure of Graphics objects
Thanks! Trees are definitely an appealing for this task. It turns out, however, that for the Graphics objects I need most help with (namely, those generated by plotting commands like Plot), the standard TreeForm layout doesn't work: these trees have too many nodes at the same level, hence many node labels get obscured by the other ones. A conceptually simple fix would be to rotate the layout of the nodes (while keeping labels horizontal), but this is surprisingly difficult to do (at least for me). I posted a question about it,...
