Weird Application Hangs on new SBS 2008 R2 Remote Desktop

Windows Server 2008 R2, new installation, plenty of RAM etc., few users, only roles installed is Remote Desktop Services (and IIS).

An ACCESS 2007 Frontend connects with ODBC native 10.0 driver and ADO to Backend  on dedicated SQL 2008 server, plenty Ram etc.

The Access application runs smoothly on stand-alone Client PC's (Win7/XP).
The Access application runs smoothly on SOME of the RemoteDesktop (RD) clients,
and the weird thing is: On most of the others RD-users the application hangs,m with event id 1002.

In addition(?) I did experience that if Access has setting to use "OVERLAPPING" windows, then Access will not close on the RD (still smoothly running on the PC's),
but if I use "TABBED" windows then it closes fine. This is to live with - but also weird.
But it stopping all work that the RD's is hanging.

The two users that I got to work is firstly the "admin"-permissions user, that I used as "master" for testing, and it just worked fine (when set to that TABBED windows...).
The second user that works was first not working (hanging...) but after several tries, and last a debugging (where I did not find any hanging moments) - then it suddenly worked. Nice :-) But even more doissapoiting, that the next user has same problem = hanging cosistenly.

Any ideas? I DID try: no antivirus, and swetting MaxBufferSize to maximum (from 0), and combination of these ideas from googling...
I gave full permissions. I can start in debug mpode (shift down) and do something, but not start the "big" application. Weird...

I did found: if I debug on a accdb on a third user, an "application hangs" one, f.ex. delete a link to a ytable and isneet it again.. then it works.
And then it works on any Acccess version (the normal .accde or a copy of the original .accdb version) - everything works, when first it works one time (after the debuggin whatever..)-.
Weird.
And still: the other useers (quiet a lot) is hanging. Do I really have to manually do something with all of them...  Nightmare...
What can it be, that needs something to activate that user? Connections... is my suspected ones... to the SQL-server or just "out of access" and out of the RemoteDesktopServer maybe. or In.
Now some sleep (danish winter dark night here)

I did the trivial work and manually debug-run the frontend on each user. Just doing some table link deleting and adding.
it seems to run after that.  Weird - no real change is done... But I'll let it run and forget the troubles... except a little worry that it comes back, sooner or later...
