If global ACLs are working for you, you must have an "acl" line in your 
conf file's plugin section, probably somethine like:

plugin {
   acl = vfile:/some/directory

Try changing the acl line to "acl = vfile", without the colon or anything 
after it, and see if per-directory ACL's don't start working.

This is only a guess that seem likely to me based on my experience.  If 
this doesn't do the trick, you can elimnate a lot of guessing by sending 
the output of dovecot -n.
