This is a fresh install, i had a previous horde/IMP install but it is in 
a diferent server, just to mention that it was working.

Im using Horde egroupware webmail, when I install it, and run the 
./scripts/setup.php it auto configure to use imp as authentication front 
end, I manage to fix the problems I had when showing the server list.

After checking and rechecking everything things are really confusing 
since I have a web front end working  no log errors in the horde.log, 
nor in the syslog, when I log in with a user I can see the log in 
session in the system logs as successful but the web dump me back to the 
log in page. Which is really confusing, is that the sql error stop, and 
though I rise the log level i get no error anywhere.

In some moment i thought the problem could be my mail service, but the 
previous system is still working so the new one should also work, in any 
case is a Postfix mailserver with cyrus IMAP with a pgsql authentication 
back end. To which I can log from anything so far without trouble.
