Thanks, @moewe, for looking into it -- and I'm glad you agree that it seems like a bug. I've written to the author, so we'll see what he says.

comment Biblatex-chicago @incollection: showing the volume field for articles in multivolume work
biblatex-chicago.pdf, p.84: "Please also note that the combination of shorthand, reprinttitle, and/or userf fields with shortened cross references may produce unexpected results, at least as biblatex-chicago-authordate currently stands. I advise caution before doing so." I'm not using authordate, but could this nevertheless explain the problem, since I am using xref and shorthand at the same time? It used to work so well, with only a few minor quirks (my original question in this post was about one of these quirks, namely a problem with how the volume field was treated).

comment Biblatex-chicago @incollection: showing the volume field for articles in multivolume work
Now that I have updated to 2013, my version is also 0.9.9d (beta). As I have continued to work, I have noticed that in this new version, it consistently renders my bibtex entries which make use of the xref field incorrectly. Reading through the new documentation (biblatex-chicago.pdf §10, p.127), I am wondering if this new problem is due to changes made to the package (which have the result of not using the xrefed entry's Title field as the @incollection's Booktitle). I have played around with the two new options booklongxref and longcrossref, with no success so far.

comment Biblatex-chicago @incollection: showing the volume field for articles in multivolume work
Sorry for the dumb question, but how can I check what version of biblatex-chicago I'm using? In any case, that may well be the problem, since I haven't yet updated to TeXLive 2013. (I hesitate because almost everything is working so well, so I'm afraid to change things, but I should probably move on.) Meanwhile, I've put together a full MWE, in case that is of help (I'll post it in a moment).
