My version 2.6.4 suddenly shows an empty Recent Programs list.

Does anyone have tips on how to fix this, other than to uninstall and re-install SiB?

Are either of you using a 'privacy app', by any chance? The reason why I am asking is that this would happen if you disabled app start tracking, for instance.

Do you mean apps that disable Windows 10's 'phone home' functionality, like O&O ShutUp10?

I've re-enabled Windows tracking of app starts. Let's see what happens. I'll be back in a couple of days.

Excellent remark, @Aethelflaed

Upon the next restart of the PC, the list of recently started Apps slowly filled up again.

Problem solved then! I use O&O Shutup, too. App start tracking is one of the few options I have enabled, as I like the 'recent application' functionality.
