Could it just be that my Steam installation got corrupted?

There's an easy way to test if the Steam installation is corrupted.
  • Open Steam
  • Go to your library
  • Right-click on Morrowind
  • Choose "Properties"
  • Click on the "Local Files" tab
  • Click the "Verify integrity of game files…" button
It will either say "All files successfully validated", meaning that you do not have a corrupt Steam install, or it will offer to fix it for you.

Well, I've reinstalled Morrowind on Steam from scratch, re-verified the cache, just to be sure. Same result. I guess, I'd write a bug report then.
