After reading this old post I checked my kolab 3.2 installed from same
repos on debian 7.5.

I had the same problem, but I found a simpler solution.

In /etc/init.d/kolab-server I add dirsrv to Required-Start: line

# Provides: kolab-server
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Required-Start: $remote_fs $local_fs $network dirsrv
. . .

After that I removed and re-added kolab-server to startup sequence with:

update-rc.d -f kolab-server remove
update-rc.d kolab-server defaults

The last 2 commands change the order in /etc/rc?.d/

Now kolab-server start after dirsrv and don't crash anymore.
