Good idea, and I just verified this. The person in the other city has an identical result to min. A few ms longer, but same host ip and service_name. Furthermore, the usernames in question only exist in this one database.

Great ideas everyone, but still have not found an answer so any more ideas are welcome, no matter if they sound crazy or not.

I am having other users in the other city test and having the first developer (with the problem) try logging in to another machine to see if it is a network or PC problem. I'll keep the list updated.
