thanks for your feedback, with the connection parameter I've outlined below,
the problem is gone. SDE was installed on one of our client's machines
by the local ESRI distributor.

Exactly, esri_sde is 5151/tcp in the services file

As I mentioned, things are working now nicely using the connection
string below. I was only confused that e.g. ogr2ogr where working if
I specified 5151 while mapserver/mapscript where not. I had to use esri_sde
