Package: horde3
Version: 3.1.3-4
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

After following the additional Debian-specific configuration hints,
login to horde is not possible with iceape or galeon (and possibly
other browsers).
horde configures php to use /horde as cookie path whereas the default
webroot in Debian is /horde3. This triggers bug #433458 that should
have been fixed. This bug was already present and fixd in debian
horde2 (bug #174072) and also described in
