Ahh, she did rebuild her dvipdfmx from source, so of course it is changed.
And yes, there is an updated dvipdfmx in tlptexlive, but it is the
same as from current svn sources, no difference. 

tlptexlive *only* adds pxdvi and pmpost, nothing else.
(plus updated binaries from current svn, but no patches for current svn
besides the above)

So your dvipdfmx works on your but not on her.
Her dvipdfmx works on her but not on your computer.

Hmmm, what a pain.

I can only think that this comes from indirect library dependencies,
one lib is ldd-ed and requires in turn another lib..
