Thanks again. I found a solution similar to your on my own (sometimes 
you should just think a little on your own before posting to the list; I 
was too quick yesterday), but your proposal is - of course - much more 
elegant in many ways.

However, I finally came up with the following solution that seem to work 
well. The variant, \textbox*, does not add any space before the box, 
which is useful just after a heading (I guess there could be a way to 
automatically detect this).
