I have two different profile2 profiles, the usual stuff. I just found out that creating new profiles of type a makes it impossible for the user to edit his profile.

How it should be:

The user registers and goes to his empty profile, sees edit buttons and links.

How it is:

The profile is empty. you see the frame for where an image belongs, but no text at all, no buttons, no links.

I took over the project with very little documentation, already existing users have full and right functionality. I did a permission rebuild, checked them and tweaked them without any success.

The users have permission to view, edit and delete own content.

Where should I look for the problem? What could cause such behaviour?

It turned out to be a CTools problem, I simply applied the patch mentioned in this comment:
