A reboot is not necessary, restarting the X server is sufficient to bring
back the default [Alt] [Fn] behaviour.

But some time (minutes... hours...) later my keyboard layout is again

Still, the question is: who/what is reconfiguring my X11 keyboard?!

Plan B: how can I store the current keyboard layout to restore it at a
later time?

"xmodmap -pke" only shows normal keys and not the modifier keys.
