I found a quicker solution than reinstalling the whole software, by simply
deleting the registry entry "layout" under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\LyX\LyX2.1\views\0. I think deleting the line in
lyx.conf for Unix users should work as well.

The problem is that other layout configurations are lost as well, as the
visible toolbars and their locations. But at least it restores the original
layout for the Source and Message panes.

If someone is interested to automate it, here is the command to run on
Windows 7 :
Reg delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\LyX\LyX2.1\views\0 /v layout /f
