Finally, we have got it - Ulf Lorenz tracked it down to the pager.
On the machine the environment variable PAGER was set to `less`.
In order to have get ANSI  "color"  escape  sequences working
one has to set
  export PAGER="less -R"
(-r option would do as well, but this seems better to me).

And now everything works fine!

Best,

Arnd
