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.
