My emacs stopped making numbered backups.  Version 21.3.

C-x C-s makes no backup, even on newly-visited file.

I have these:
(setq kept-new-versions 10)  ;# newest versions to save
(setq version-control t)
(setq delete-old-versions t)    ;delete middle backups quietly

Has anyone ever seen the backer-upper stop working?

No, but:

C-h v make-backup-files
C-h v vc-make-backup-files
C-h v backup-inhibited
C-h v backup-enable-predicate
C-h f normal-backup-enable-predicate
C-h v temporary-file-directory
C-h v small-temporary-file-directory
