I got it:

there was a hidden deprecated proxy server set in the "LocalService" 
Profile. It seems that telnet is not affected by this setting but 
cscript does.
I noticed that by running xpnetdiag.exe (KB914440) from the 
"LocalService" shell.

Know the only remaining problem is to remove that entry from the 
LocalService profile on a whole bunch of workstations, but i think i 
will manage this. :-)

Thanks for your support,
