[horde] Export user's preferences

My Horde data base is probably corrupted, here are some of the  
problems some users are having:

- some users cannot select the address book to "save recipients  
automatically" in IMP preferences;
- some users cannot see its contacts and they are unnable to export it;
- some users cannot use its calendar and they are unnable to export it;

Those are users that have been using Horde for a long time.

I have tried to "horde-remove-user-data" for one of those users but it  
did not solve the problem for him.

I am sure that this problem is because I have missed or donne some  
mistakes in the several upgrades in the past, during 15 years using  
Horde/Imp/Turba/Kronolith, besides I waited too long to upgrade from  
Horde 3.x. My fault!

I am thinking of exporting whatever data can be exported, start a new  
empty database and import back the data.

1- Can I export users preferences (or dump from databse)? How?

2- Is there an automated way to export user's data (contact, calendar,  
task and notes)? I know that each user can do it himself. I would  
prefer not to dump from the database here, as it is corrupted.  
Exporting would work for some data and not for other data.

Using latest stable Horde/Imp/Turba/Kronolith (not from git), Mysql, Debian.
