Dear Alan,
Problem solved. I have a style file inherited from three other books, always modified. It is very long as it contains not only the user defined commands but also the book design.
I searched it for all relevant commands but could not find the reason for the errant behaviour.
Turned out that the offending commands were in the source file!
I now use the chngcntr package, thanks for the tip.
