In case it's useful to anyone else, here's what finally fixed it.

I did a "yum update" this morning and noticed some errors.

  /sbin/ldconfig: file /usr/lib/ is truncated

That file is part of libicu, so I ran "yum reinstall libicu". And now
everything seems to be working fine.

I still have no idea a) what caused this truncation or b) why that
caused my problem. But anyway, it's fixed now. So I'm happy.
