* The dimensions of your *figure*  are of 2.75 inches (7/2.54).
* [0, 5] for xmin, xmax etc. are your conventional units within axes, 
not related to figsize.
* The radius of your Circle patch is 1 ;    (0.05,0.05) is its center.

* I don't see any disappearance. If you "close your eye", the two plots 
of sqrt(whatever) are eliminated,, but the patch is still there. Only 
Matplotlib redefines the scale of the plot, the circle becomes bigger, 
and a smaller fragment is plotted.
Notice that you never fix the scales using axis(...).

Bon courage.
