I solved it: Somehow, Ubuntu' apt-get removed 'xset'. This became obvious when I launched Mathematica via a xterm. 'xset: command not found.' (I replaced 'xset' by a shell script that showed the arguments, and, apparently, Mathematica does a 'xset fp rehash') 'apt-get install xset' seems to have solved it.
