OK, my bad.  I have just discovered what's wrong, and I believe that
it's an org-mode problem.  I had an org custom command for the day's
agenda, and when I use /that/ command, it gives me the bad faces.  If I
use the standard org-agenda entry point, I get the day's agenda with
good faces.

Sorry to lead you down the garden path, David.  Thanks (as always) for
your help.
