Hi Harlan,

I am an OpenBSD user so possibly what I am saying is not applicable to  
Ubuntu. However, because I really like the Horde framework (just a  
user, not very knowledgeable about PHP) as well, just wanted to  
mention that we get the same error in OpenBSD when I use "localhost"  
instead of "" for the database server (in my case postgresql).

Hope this is helpful.
