I bet it's the "Accessible Content" extension that changes the default wrap
from <div>
to <span>, which is no good idea, since a span should be inside a <hX> and
not vice versa.
So could you please disable this extension and check if the <span> remains?
If not we can try to find a way to correct the behaviour of this particular
extension, so that
a) the <div> will return or
b) the span will move into the <hX>

while b) might produce other problems since the corresponding CSS would need
a rewrite too.
