Mostly got this issue fixed.  it must have been a problem with cookies.  I moved my previous Horde 3 install to a 'webmail-old' directory so it could still be used if needed.  The Horde 4 install was then created in the 'webmail' directory - which Horde 3 was originally in.

After clearing browser cache and history, the auto-expansion seemed to work.

But, there still is one problem - the expansion of contact lists within an address book.  I have a contact list of about 15 people in my address book - and it does not auto-expand.  It does this with Horde 3.  But the only way an e-mail can be sent to the contact list is if you click the To button (or hit the Address Book button in Traditional view).  Then click the contact list.
