Thanks, but that wasn't it.

The "Number of Columns" dropdown in the "Image Alignment" section is
set to "1". I have never touched that setting for any content element
in our site (as far as I can remember).

But I think I just found my explanation:

So I guess it's all my fault again after all (especially for not
mentioning floating image layouts).

I stand by my opinion that something like this must be reflected in
the user interface where relevant (like when the user defines the
desired size of an image).
