There we are! If I write

\use_native_filedialog false

at the end of my ~/.lyx/preferences-file, then it works properly, .tex-
files show up (the look-and-feel of the file-open-dialog changes a
little bit, though), with

\use_native_filedialog true

the problem in consideration returns.
Playing around with this I noticed that my added custom entry in the
preferences-file disappeared, but it still works, with
OpenDocumentText.odt files as well.
So far as I can see now I am happy with this solution - thanks a lot!
