thanks, I fixed the problem using the hook.
However seems that if I don't use this hook, horde is not enterely 
case-insensitive: turba works (I can see my contact) with either lower, upper 
or mixed case, while with kronolith I have some problem:

>> Instead, I can create New Event in the calendar only if I am logged in with 
>> the lower-case, otherwise I get an error that I don't have enough
>> permission to create the event. If I create the event, with the lower-case 
>> login, when I log in with upper-case I can see the event in the calendar 
>> view, but I can't view, edit or delete the event.

Is it a horde bug?
