Ok, now I have verified two details I wasn't entirely sure about
1) If I have a broken "pkgsrc" session (ls doesn't work), and I don't
close it, but rather use Ctrl+Alt+Fx to switch to another session, log
in/out with my "jan" user, and then switch back to the still active
"pkgsrc" session, then "ls" will start working. So it appears to be a
very global problem.
2) Logging _in_ with my "jan" user doesn't make it work. It's the
logging *out* which makes the change to the better.
