I have also run into similar issue on our app. most of the time the culprit
is presence of a proxy server or a cache server intercepting the
request/response and chopping off the view state if its too big. Check if
these users have components like WebTv or Google accelrator.

nothing like that on the users machine, we do have IIS server but its
bypassed for local sites,
just seems weird that its on one machine - it follows the users profile
around as well - so if the user
logs onto another machine - the problem surfaces - might be the cache in the
users profile - will try to clear that
