Create a script which reads in the yaml file, and run it on each computer.
This should at least narrow down whether the problem is in the
yaml-side or the formfu-side.

Config::Any (which formfu uses) will use YAML::Syck if it's available,
in preference to YAML.
Check the version number of YAML::Syck and Config::Any on all machines.
Check the perl version number on all machines.
Check the cpu / available memory on all machines.

Do you have a test script?
