Playing with synclient and xinput I discovered that I could make it
register a button-2 press by adjusting the synclient parameters
EmulateTwoFingerMinZ and EmulateTwoFingerMinW.  I had not changed their
settings, so I assumed they were correct.  But in fact, setting them as
suggested in the web sites above seems to work.

Now I have two-finger scrolling and middle-clicking again!  I'm very
happy.  (Though I still don't know what changed to make it stop

Jörg-Volker, thanks for your help.
