[R] Overlay Boxplot with scatter plot

boxplot does not use the actual values of aa as x-value, but considers 
aa as a factor having three levels.


bxp <- boxplot(bb~aa, data=nn)

to see what the boxplot actually is.
For your lines you should also use three levels.


(after you have been correcting your example code...)
