Here's the relevant extract of the output of dovecot -n:

# 1.2.10: /etc/dovecot.neu/dovecot.conf
# OS: Linux x86_64  
mail_privileged_group: mail
mail_cache_min_mail_count: 10
mail_plugins: acl imap_acl quota imap_quota trash fts fts_squat listescape
imap_client_workarounds: delay-newmail outlook-idle
  type: private
  separator: /
  location: maildir:/srv/mail.neu/dirs/%u:INBOX=/srv/mail.neu/dirs/%u/.INBOX:INDEX=/srv/mail.neu/meta/%u/index:CONTROL=/srv/mail.neu/meta/%u/control

  quota_warning2: storage=98%% /usr/local/bin/mailquota 98

  fts: squat
  acl: vfile
  acl_shared_dict: proxy::acl
  acl: mysql:/etc/dovecot.neu/dovecot-dict-sql.conf

I should mention another amazing fact. The   LIST "" *   command shows all mailboxes in all namespaces for which the user has the l(ist) permission but the INBOXES of other users are never listed. But the myrights command shows that the ACLs are correct.
