Karl, thanks for your suggestions.

I took a look at some version numbers and discovered that I was using 
MikTeX 2.4. There's supposed to be an upgrade mechanism to 2.5, but I 
couldn't find it so I downloaded and installed 2.5 -- and couldn't get 
the Lucida fonts to work at all. Not having the time to fiddle around, I 
removed 2.5 completely and replaced 2.4 from my backup. Wonders! 
Everything worked, including the rogue font. So now I'm happy, even 
though it's not very scientific ...

Best wishes
