comment System asking for Apple ID login
Alas, that's not it. Or at least not just this. I just got asked again, some five minutes after waking up the machine. ☹️

Thanks! I've accepted this for now, and would unaccept it if this didn't fix the issue as I expect it will. The upvote stays, since this is a useful answer in any case.

@bjbk: That sounds very plausible. I don't know how to check whether the OS is attempting to upgrade just now. But I found that in the AppStore tab in the System Preferences I can have it save the password for free downloads. I'll see whether that does the trick for me.

comment Display unicode information
Your answer did help me in two ways. Firstly, it indicated where the information would be displayed. I got the name there but not the codes. Secondly, I noticed that you have way more symbol lists in the left part of the window. I added some more and suddenly the codes showed up. A bit of tweaking showed that enabling the Unicode list did make that info available. But the change didn't take effect immediately; I had to switch to a different symbol to see that effect. I'm on a German OS X. Do you want to include the English names for the setting I mentioned in your answer?
