For the sake of helping others that may run into the same problem:
the problem could be solved with the help of Jürgen and Marco.
The standard OSGeo installation path is on C:\OSGeo - I installed under
C:\Programme\OSGeo, because our IT services told me to do so. As a
result, qt couldn't find it's image plugins. Jürgen could solve the
issue by setting the environment variable QT_PLUGIN_PATH:
the batch file could be stored in %OSGEO4W_ROOT%\etc\ini\qt4.bat
After that jpeg images can be loaded in the print composer, WMS requests
and in customized GUI elements of plugins.
Jürgen fixed the OSGeo installer to handle such cases.
