I have a couple suggestions:

* Try running 'condor_starter.std -classad' on the command line on the affected machine. It should print something like this:
IsDaemonCore = False
HasRemoteSyscalls = True
HasCheckpointing = True
CondorVersion = "$CondorVersion: 7.8.6 Oct 24 2012 BuildID: 73238 $"

* Try looking in the StartLog. It should show when the starter is spawned and when and how it exits (signal 11, etc).

* Try setting CREATE_CORE_FILES to True in the config file and look for core files in the HTCondor log directory. The backtrace from a core file can help indicate what's going wrong.
