Thanks anyone for the replies. In case anyone else encounters the problem: I solved the issue "brute-force" by resetting all the Preferences to their default value (hold Shift+Option keys down at Mathematica start-up, on a Macintosh). So most probably the cause was an obscure preference toggled unintentionally, although I don't know which and how.
