Sounds a lot like cookies/sessions aren't working.  Try either having
them turn on cookies, or set up the php url rewriter.  If they have
cookies on, possibly a proxy server is getting in the way.  You may be
able to find that out from asking them if they know they're using a
proxy or by looking up the PTR records for their source IPs and/or the
user agent in your logs.
