Thanks for the tip! I did not need to change the configuration: since 
apache had already been complaining about the lack of a fully qualified 
domain name, I added "localhost.localdomain" to this line in /etc/hosts: localhost.localdomain localhost

Now when I visit the URL below I can login as admin:

That's a big drawback, and I have hit this problem, so I put the apps 
back where they belong.

Maybe it would be useful if a sysadmin had an easy way to tell apart the 
horde/ sub-dirs which are apps from those which are basic horde 
components. In Zope 2 all the apps go inside a certain directory (called 
Products), and in Zope 3 they can be anywhere but each must have a 
corresponding config file in a specific dir. In both cases one can use 
symlinks to quickly add/remove functionality from the site.

Thanks for helping me solve this issue!
