Since it happens to the same images on all systems, it seems to me the 
problem is with the image (nice image, by the way :-) )
Are they all RAW-images, with (supposedly) embedded jpg-thumbnails? 
Could it be that the embedded preview is broken, some way or another? If 
"rebuild thumbnails" makes a thumbnail of png and jpg, and copies the 
embedded preview of RAW, then that explains why you don't see anything 
(assuming that is the problem).

Best regards,
