— could you please recommend me some decent UML editor for Linux?

Dia is decent enough. I have used it in the past.

Recently (through the results of postgresql_autodoc) I started using Graphviz which produces much beter results than what I can achieve with an UML-editor.  

Learn the dot-language (part of graphviz).  It is not that complicated.

Yes Dia seems promising (at first glance). But I have there some little but annoying troubles from the start.
For example, I can not resize elements at all, though they have proper markers.
Word wrapping in the graphical elements (for example in class nodes) doesn't work for me (or I am just too stupid to figure out how to turn it on), so boxes with long names looks pretty ugly in result.


Well, actually I've used graphviz and dot previously (though it's been a while). But before you've mentioned it I had no thought to do with it something UMLish.
Now I see that it is a really good idea. I should try it. Thanks!
