At home I am using LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 (Windows 10)
In my office I use a little older version (not sure about that version
In the office I do: Alt+P -> open special character dialog -> select a
character -> Enter
When I repeat this operation a little later and want to use the SAME
it used to be selected already and all I had to do was press Enter.
At home this does not work any more.
I have to repeat to entire procedure: Alt+P -> open special character
dialog -> select a character -> Enter.
Is this an "improvement" (of obscure meaning) I have to live with,
or is there a trick that would give me the functionality I am enjoying
in my office?

It is Alt+P.

No, it is not a default "Short-cut" and never has been, rather it is an
algorithm assigned "accelerator" generated for the Insert menu--it will vary
based on locale.
So, here the accelerator would be <Alt> -> I ->P, for S_p_ecial Character,
and <Enter>--accelerators have different scope than shortcuts, applying only
to the menu where shown.
However, you can set a Shortcut for <Alt>+P (or any other unassigned key)
from the Tools -> Customize dialog.
You would assign a Keyboard shortcut against the "Symbol" function to
directly launch the Special Character dialog.
At the 6.0 release the dialog includes a bar with recently used glyphs and
At the 6.1 release the standard toolbar includes a hidden split button
Special Character popup for easy glyph reuse, you can show that. And the
split button will become the default for the 6.2 release.
