[horde] METAR block : cannot set location

Hello list,

I am currently trying hard to make the METAR block work on my latest setup, which is Horde 3.3.5 on a Gentoo system with php 5.2.11.
Horde itself works well, along with IMP/DIMP. However, the METAR block displays the infamous "No location is set" message, and does not allow me to select any location.

The database was properly populated using Services_Weather.
My attempts at debugging have failed so far. I placed a var_dump($this->_params) inside the _content() function and found it almost empty (array(1) { ["_refresh_time"]=> string(1) "0" }). However, if I dump $this->_params(), the function return what looks like the expected result, with all the ICAO identifiers.

I have no idea how to move forward from here, since I have little knowledge of Horde's internals so far.

Thanks for any light you might shed on this !



PS : also, this is a Gentoo system, so I thought I was missing a very obvious USE flag or config option, but I couldn't come up with anything ...
