Either I got a badly broken horde install (soap server) or I miss 
something else.
If I go for a soap request under php 5 things work well.
If I do the same request on a php4 horde install things turn really bad.

php 5 http://webmail.cmdbase.ch/test.php
php 4 http://horde.akero.ch/test.php

and the result for php4 box : http://entwicklung.akero.ch/example/soap.php
