Well, there isn't any other place where it's easy to do that notification; no
other plase that I can see definitively *knows* when a login happens.

What I've done is simply made that block check for the existance of a global
$notification object first - so for you, it should silently ignore it, while
it'll work for all of the Horde apps that define $notification.

How's that sound?
