Hello, I am observing this (funky?) behavior:
in the agenda, the deadline seems to be identified only if it
immediately follows the headline, and it is ignored otherwise.
Am I missing something?   Thank you, Paolo.

You are not missing something.  As the manual says:

     A timestamp may be preceded by special keywords to facilitate
     planning.  Both the timestamp and the keyword have to be positioned
     immediately after the task they refer to.

I guess immediately means not even a blank line.


it looks like

* TODO task
DEADLINE: <2017-12-14 Do>
SCHEDULED: <2017-12-14 Do>

will find the DEADLINE and SCHEDULE timestamp and display correctly in the 
agenda while

* TODO task
SCHEDULED: <2017-12-14 Do>
DEADLINE: <2017-12-14 Do>

will still find the SCHEDULED tinestamp but no more the DEADLINE.
I had this sequence in my org templates in the past and had no issues as far as 
I remember.
Has this behaviour changed?

Freshly creating a new SCHEDULED and DEADLINED timestamp results in the 
structure below.
Do all tasks now need to have both items in the same line like here:

* TODO task
SCHEDULED: <2017-12-14 Do> DEADLINE: <2017-12-14 Do>

Thank you.
