Finally someone gave me the good idea (thanks Dominik): I added 4MHz to 
the tuning frequency and now, AFAICT every transponder works great. I 
must also say that I have patched my multiproto tree with Dominik's 
patch, but I am not sure that it changes results by so much.
Anyway, things now look much better!
