This shouldn't be necessary.

Don't know what a "resolved" error means.

The password module has not "disappeared" - it has not yet been
released for H4. Within the last few days there has been activity
focused on updating the code to allow a H4 release in the near future.

That is just a flat out incorrect statement. The list of major
changes in the CHANGELOG file indicates approximately 260 entries
between IMP 4 -> IMP 5.0.0. While some of these changes may be
specific to a particular view, the vast majority are core changes to
IMP that affect all views. Not to mention the large number of changes
in framework & base horde application that also affect the application.
