I don't think the problem had to do with the shift to a newer version
per se. There are a number of earlier versions on the same computer
(2.6.5, 2.7.3, 2.7.4, 2.8.0) and 2.8.1 worked fine for almost two
weeks before the troubles started. Could it have been some later
corruption? Only 2.8.1 was affected.
In the User's Library/Preferences/Runtime Revolution/Revolution
Studio folder, I found four items: active_version.txt,
revpreferences.rev, revonline.prefs, SearchEnginePrefs.xml. It was
revpreferences.rev which I removed, and now things seem to have
turned to normal.
All the best,
