[horde] Strange loop when configuring Horde

Although the steps I described below *do* reproduce the problem, my 
conclusion seems to be wrong, because when conf.php is not writable by 
apache, when I manually copy the resulting configuration from the Horde 
page to the conf.php file the redirect loop happens again. So the loop 
happens because of something wrong in the configuration.

I managed to complete this configuration correctly twice before, but now 
I can't remember a step (and can't find it documented). After accessing 
the Horde UI without a password, when can I create the real 
Administrator account and set it's password?
