Thanks a lot for the extremely quick answer. This solved the problem!

And it was really stupid of me. I actually use two typescripts in the
document and I defined math font in the second one (because I needed
another font for math in titles). But I thought that the default math
family was OK. It also worked without any problems untill I tried to
use ucgreek.

(Is [encoding=\typescripttwo] used in "math" or may it be left out?)
