... all functions on the flash continue to work. It charges normally, but does not discharge (either throught the "Test" button or when triggered from the camera). Could this be just the bulb, or does it sound like more serious problem (damaged el. circuit)?

did you recently dropped your flash ? if no have you tried replacing batteries ? although you mention that batteries are fully charged if you are using old rechargeable batteries this might have an effect with your flas
The flash capacitor may need formatting after a long period of disuse (years). This means a longer than normal charge time and a few charge-discharge (test flash) cycle. If however the red LED, next to the power switch, does not light up after a few seconds, the flash can be faulty. Having repaired a flash of this age is not easy, spare parts are not available.
Then I'd say it's a reasonably sure thing that the green light is just burned out, The lights are supposed to be off at first, then red when there's a partial charge, then green when there's a full charge, then flashing between red and green when the "battery saver" kicks in. If you're seeing off, then red, then off, then flashing red, then that means everything in the charging circuit is working perfectly, there's just no green light.
If one cell has died, there will be enough power to power up the flash, but not enough to charge it reasonably fast. It may also stop the other cells charging up properly if they are charged together. I've had this problem with poor quality rechargeables before. I think flashguns put pretty heavy demands on batteries.
Trigger coil or a flash tube. Flash tube is easier to replace so try to replace that first. Caution before you do anything else when you open the unit locate the main 330v capacitor and discharge it before you work on the unit !
