False alarm!

Sorry to François if he's annoyed at user stupidity ... I removed the 
nolocalmarks option and everything runs fine! Maybe customizing the 
\leftmark and \rightmark and then telling polyglossia that there are 
nolocalmarks is something of a contradiction, no? That seems to have 
been my mistake.

I suspect that for /me/ the problem originated a long time ago, in 
pre-polyglossia days when I had the teTeX installation and I was using 
gtamachoefler package ... a long and sad story, indeed.

But the happy ending is another satisfied polyglossia user! Sorry for 
the trouble.

United in adoration of Jesus,
