How long after do you come back to Horde ?

If it takes you longer then the time sessions are cleaned on the server 
(around 20 min), it is going to make you login again.

Also, for "security" reasons, some browsers (like IE) destroy the session 
cookie before this 20 min...

Otherwise, settings seems ok. Did you try to put the server name directly like 
this to see if it works ?

 $conf['cookie']['domain'] ='myserver'
