OK, so it's some extension I have installed. If I switch to a different identity, with only the Google Docs stuff installed, I can log in and comment.
Most of the extensions I have installed for the primary identity aren't currently enabled... which maybe narrows it down, or maybe installed-but-disabled extensions can still do weird stuff?

Well, I turned off "Search Params Remover" and "Return YouTube Dislike", and that seems to have de-broken whatever was going on. The Web is increasingly weblike, with extreme interconnectedness, which leads to vast unpredictability. (This is not case of connections adding redundancy, but of everything being dependent on all the connections, which adds fragility as well as unpredictability.)
