Back on the intel iMac, and the solution turned out to be extremely  
simple: I forgot to change the path settings in TeXShop, so I ended  
with using my old TeTeX installation. When I switched to TeXLive, I  
went through my local texmf and compared every package with the ones  
in the TeXLive tree and deleted quite a lot. Since some packages of  
teTeX aren't up to date, this resulted in different results when  
typesetting it.
