I found a way. Pretty hackish, indeed, but it seems to work.

1. Create a virtual host and point the DocumentRoot it to /horde/APP
2. Configure horde webroot = '/', cookie prefix = '/'
3. Create a symlink  /horde/APP/APP =>  /horde/APP and put "Options 
FollowSymLinks" to .htaccess

It works now, but all the links are of form: server/APP/. What I need now is a 
little RewriteRule (in order to hide APP in urls) and it should be ok. 

The downside is that I cannot use the files from /horde/service/ directory 
(namely problem.php), but I can live with it. My "APP" is also an 
authentication handler, so I don't need horde/login.php. I don't really see 
any other problem I could have with such an infrastructure...

Thanks a lot for all your work, by the way. It's quite a pleasure to work with 
Horde framework!
