The missing link here is that during the upgrade from 3.8.0 to 3.8.1 the
definition of the 'fe_group' remained VARCHAR 100 instead of INT 11. In some way
I cannot understand this was not changed. By manually:

ALTER TABLE `tt_content` CHANGE `fe_group` `fe_group` INT( 11 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0'

all is well again. For months I had this problem with my own website which is
now solved.
