[horde] Duplicate Turba Icon In Top Menu When 'horde' not in 'apps'

Well, this is a really strange one to me.  I tried fiddling with a bunch 
of the simple things including downgrading from PHP 5.2.10 to 5.2.9, 
none of which made a difference.

So I started poking around in the code which is when I really was 
getting confused.  Somehow, when 'horde' is not in the 
$conf['menu']['apps'] array for IMP, Ingo or Turba an extra element gets 
added to the array.  On my system, 'turba' is getting tacked on to the 
end of the $conf['menu']['apps'] array if 'horde' is not in the array.

It also does not matter what the order of the apps is, it is always 
'turba' getting pushed on to the end.

It is as if $conf['menu']['apps'] = array('turba','ingo'); is getting 
magically changed to $conf['menu']['apps'] = array('turba','ingo', 'turba');

Very very strange if you ask me.

The file where the menu seems to me to be generated and where I have 
verified that 'turba' is pushed on to the end of the apps array is 

I have written a nasty hack to work around this.  Below is a patch in 
case someone else needs to fix the same issue:

That just pops the last element off the apps array to work around the 

Yes it is stupid but what I will use for now.  A correct fix would be 
good though.

I have no idea how this could be happening.  I searched the code for 
array_push() calls and didn't see anything that looks to me like it 
would be the culprit.
