[horde] override file seems not to be checked

Hi everyone,
I've spent many hours trying to figure out why my IMP couldn't connect
to my IMAP server anymore (since at least 2 upgrades). It is not a
production server so I've ignored it for a while but now I've decided
to spend more time on it and after testing pretty much everything I've
realised that the override file:
is simply ignored now as it was trying to connect to "localhost"
Changing the 'hostspec' into backends.php (where it should not be done)
fixed everything.

*** related entry in backends.php (the dist version prior

    // Plaintext logins are disabled by default on IMAP servers (see RFC 3501
    // [6.2.3]), so TLS is the only guaranteed authentication available by

    'secure' => 'tls',

Anyone experienced the same?
Thanks in advance.
