Thanks for your reply. I just found the export option in the Global Shorcuts
KCM and exported the key bindings of all modules into one file. It has no
mentioning of Ctrl+Space.

I looked at them – nothing out of the ordinary there. (see below). The only
*real* physical difference is that on the machine where it doesn’t work, I
use a PS/2 keyboard. The other one’s a laptop (but aren’t those keyboards
PS/2 also?). I can’t put my finger on it when it started. But I’ve been
using this KB for over a year now (though on another machine with – for all
intents and purposes – an identical setup until recently) and I can’t
believe that I’ve been having this problem for sooo long already.
