InfoPath fails after applying SP

Service packs fix lots of issues in the installations but sometimes they also create problems. It becomes a pain to track down the source of the problem if you have a huge setup. A user yesterday reported the following problem after he applied SP2 on the server running InfoPath: The format of the Canary has been tampered with for form xxxxxx by the end user.
