It would be a good idea to export a file to LaTeX (pdflatex), then run

are problems with your LaTeX (MiKTeX?) distribution.
I tried exporting three files and see three different behaviours. Looks like my
whole installation is even more broken than I thought. I think I will wipe all
LyX and MikTeX from disk and try re-installing afterwards.
If there anything I should delete after uninstalling the software from the Windows XP
Control Panel to end up with a "clean" system?
Assuming windows 7, you may want to delete (or simply rename/move it)
the LyX preferences folder ("lyx20"), in the AppData\Roaming folder in
you home directory (the AppData folder is hidden).
that would be
on windows 7, and something like (from memory)
C:\Documents and Settings\your_login\AppData\Roaming\lyx20
Also, some apps can help checking for leftovers ("ccleaner" is such an
app) when uninstalling a soft (they are safe to use to analyse the
left-overs, you may want to be careful if you use them for cleaning)
