Sorry for answering myself, but comparing the ldiff-files:

in both i have a structure up to ou=People,dc=valler,dc=vgs,dc=no

But in the working one, there is a
in which all the users are placed. The groups are placed directly on

On the non-functional server, both users and groups are placed directly
on People.

"cn=Users,ou=People,dc=valler,dc=vgs,dc=no" seems to be the "primary
group" for all users (which i know is correct). It is at least a
"posixGroup" objectClass.

I hope i figured it out! Isn't it typical, after two months of
headbanging, you post a desperate mail, and then the solution is there,
10 minutes later...
