Well, I would really like to do that, but I *couldn't*. All I ever saw
(except for the menu icons) is error messages. So I can click on
"Administration" -> "Setup", but as soon as I select an application I
get only error messages, mostly about trying to access nonexisting
hash keys.

Luckily enough, I was able to trace down the cause now. After I added
$conf['log']['enabled'] = false to conf.php I was at least able to
configure horde. After logging out and restarting the browser, the
remaining error messages disappeared as well.

Horde seems to be a great application, thanks for packaging it. Yet I
think that the installation process could be improved. Is it really
not possible to get such critical bugfixes into etch? It seems to me
that expecting the user to fix two major bugs before he has even seen
anything from the application is quite unfortunate.
