[Dovecot] sieve doesn't sift yet

Hi all,

I am having difficulty getting sieve working. I created a simple set of
rules which I've validated on the sieve-php page at SF. I placed this file,
.dovecot.sieve, in the root of my maildir, which I understand is the
default location. I also created a logfile in /var/log, but nothing has
gotten written to it yet. Here is my configuration:

$ sudo dovecot -n
# 1.0.13: /usr/local/etc/dovecot.conf
base_dir: /var/run/dovecot/
log_path: /var/log/dovecot
info_log_path: /var/log/dovecot.info
ssl_disable: yes
disable_plaintext_auth: no
login_dir: /var/run/dovecot/login
login_executable: /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/imap-login
verbose_proctitle: yes
first_valid_gid: 0
mail_access_groups: mail
mail_location: maildir:/var/spool/vmail/%n
mail_debug: yes
pop3_uidl_format: %08Xu%08Xv
auth default:
  verbose: yes
    driver: passwd-file
    args: /usr/local/etc/dovecot-passwd
    driver: passwd
    driver: static
    args: uid=vmail gid=vmail home=/var/spool/vmail/%n

What piece of the puzzle am I still missing?

Running dovecot-sieve-1.0.2, postfix, etc under FreeBSD v7.
