Oh, that sounds bad if it is in the fonts (I don't understand, it
seemed to work fine with lmodern, stixtwo, lucidaot, ... just before,
has something changed recently?)

Two related questions:

1) This \mathnolimitsmode does not seem to have any effect in a
\startformula \stopformula.
2) Could one set this globally (both inline and displayed formulas) in
a document?
