What video card and driver are you using in the machine that fails?

Maybe you could strace zyn and that may (unlikely) tell us something.
You can do (if using bash as the shell):

  strace zynaddsubfx &>zyntrace.txt

And then quit zyn after the problem manifests itself. The trace will be
very long (it is a trace of all system calls that the executable makes).
Maybe you could compare it with one from the systems that work fine.
Unlikely we'll know what's going on but worth a try.
