Debian bug kolab 3.1 during setup-kolab

Hi, please tell me what to do now...

I have re-installed a fresh debian wheezy, this time following the
unofficial doc about kolab 3.1

I let everything by default, and I get this:

    Please supply a Kolab Service account password. This account is used by various
    services such as Postfix, and Roundcube, as anonymous binds to the LDAP server
    will not be allowed.

    Kolab Service password [xxxxxxxxxxxxxx]: 
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/sbin/setup-kolab", line 42, in <module>
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pykolab/setup/", line 43, in run
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pykolab/setup/", line 170, in execute
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pykolab/setup/", line 202, in execute
        components[component_name]['function'](conf.cli_args, kw)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pykolab/setup/", line 483, in execute
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pykolab/auth/", line 148, in connect
        from pykolab.auth import ldap
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pykolab/auth/ldap/", line 38, in <module>
        import auth_cache
    ImportError: No module named auth_cache

Now, what?

Seriously, if kolab does not work on debian, don't let people try
it without warning.
