Also checked the System Preferences Keyboard pane - no joy. This also happened with some former MacBookPros. When I have a chance, I'll configure a virgin minimal system to try.

Yes, a standard American English keyboard. Two different models and the internal keyboard of a MacBookPro.
Some more things its not:
Font in LC Prefs (set to Default 12 or 16)
For sure not a customized shortcut in System Prefs Keyboard pane.
Its not this physical hardware. I made a virgin Mavericks LC 6.7.6 external disk that works fine.
It also works fine on another iMac here with Mavericks and LC 5.5.4.
Its not something lurking in old "My RunRev" folders (now trashed).

Anybody have more suggestions? I have a lot of old stuff on this computer - being a packrat I never throw anything away unless it bites me. How about removing LC Preferences? I forget where they are . . .
