Thanks for the hint.
For anyone who has the same troubles updating:

I was using the same php.ini as before, so mbstring should have been 
But it seems php 5.3alpha handles ini files differently. In the line

	include_path = ".;C:\xampp\php\pear\"

the last backslash escaped the quote, so everything after this line 
would go into include_path and other settings are ignored.
Solution: use double backslashes (\\) or forward slashes (/) instead of 
one backslash.

For Windows make sure to use php_mbstring.dll from the snapshot 
(http://snaps.php.net/win32/php5.3-win32-latest.zip). The old one is not 
compatible anymore.

all the best,

slice up the elephant, baby!
