Here you asked the right question! On the one machine (the working one)
it is 1.2.3, on the other it WAS 0.27.0 (the default SuSE/Yast

It is a robot control software that I execute distributedly on two
machines. Since I have to share numerous header and config files for
interfacing purposes it makes sense to have one common code tree.

Thanks for your help!
