*Horde 3.1.3 debian packages on etch amd64 as part of kolab installation

System installed ok and worked, then package accidentally removed with
apt due to a dependency, then re-installed with apt-get install
--reinstall horde3

Horde now gives the following error on startup:

Notice*: unserialize() [function.unserialize
Argument is not a string in */usr/share/horde3/lib/Horde/Identity.php*
on line *79*

*Warning*: main(/etc/horde/horde3/../templates/common-header.inc)
<http://dorus.woodwind-group.com.au/horde3/function.main>]: failed to
open stream: No such file or directory in
*/usr/share/horde3/services/portal/index.php* on line *45*

*Fatal error*: main() [function.require
<http://dorus.woodwind-group.com.au/horde3/function.require>]: Failed
opening required '/etc/horde/horde3/../templates/common-header.inc'
in */usr/share/horde3/services/portal/index.php* on line *45

My apache2 horde config:

Alias /horde3 /usr/share/horde3/

<DirectoryMatch /usr/share/horde/horde3/>
  Options FollowSymLinks
  AllowOverride Limit
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all

It looks to me as though a path is not being set correctly somewhere.

I posted this to the horde list and chuck referred the problem to the debian list:

Definitely. You need to talk to the debian maintainers, though, since  
that file layout is completely re-jiggered from how Horde is  


Sorry for the long email - any solutions or pointers to the right direction would be appreciated
