Finally! I have found the problem :-)

GDB immediately told me that it could not load some DLLs, and segfaulted.

The non-existing DLLs appears to be leftovers, from an old version of the surveillance application called "Digital Guardian".
It is some crap-ware that injects itself deep into the OS, and monitors all sort of stuff, like file transference.

It is very likely that a white-list exists, and this could be why all our "normal" programs was working perfectly.

I have yet to find a way to fix it, but now I can at least blame a borked installation of "Digital Guardian".

In any case, it is reason enough to justify giving any user with the problem a new PC. Which is likely to be the solution.

Thanks to everybody for the input, and especially to you Martin, for pointing me in the right direction. Much appreciated.

And your state of the art "unmanageable" anti-virusscanner didn't pick up on that?  :P :P

Glad we now have a method to debug such things.
That was a good idea Martin.
