Bingo!  Although there is no redefinition of \clearpage in the ms itself,
there are loads of packages loaded, many of which I have never heard of.
So I put \let\CLEARPAGE\clearpage at the top of the file and replaced
\clearpage by \CLEARPAGE before the bibliography and, mirabile dictu, it
worked!  Thanks for the suggestion, many thanks.
