This issue would affect all clients, and usually all software that is 
being run from the server.

But here only some old 16 bit programs are affected, not even all 16 bit 
programs. And they work fine on the few remaining WinXP machines, they 
only refuse to start in Win7.

All clients have execute permission on all exe files. This must be some 
strange protocol incompatibility.
