Only enumerations are shown on a custom type

I created a new 'Person' type. The fields were showing in random order, I've added the following code to the theme single placement.info:

<Match ContentType="Person">
    <Place Fields_Enumeration="Content:2.1"/>
  </Match>

(so that the title, which is an enumeration from Mr, Ms, etc shows first).

This worked fine for some time ...  But a few days later I noticed the Person non-admin view is only showing enumerations ... I've reverted the change, restarted the PC - no change. No widgets on that page are overwritten in the theme.

 

Any idea what's going on here?

I assume you already checked that the fields were still attached to the Person?
As a test, create a new content type, attach some fields, and see if these do show up?
As to what's going on, one could only guess at what's been done in the last few days.

Thanks sfmskywalker (your blog http://skywalkersoftwaredevelopment.net/blog is very useful BTW)

Changing missing fields' display option from Default flavor to Small fixed the problem ...
