Hi Timo,

No, they stay in place. I mean they disappear from the folder list as seen on 
the IMAP client. It's not a client-side caching issue, I requested the folder 
list from the server using IMAP commands by hand (with telnet), and they don't 
show up if I enable ACLs.

Yes, I deleted them before every check I did. The strange thing is that it 
never makes an attempt to open a file named dovecot-acl inside the shared 
folder's maildir. It tries to access dovecot-acl-list files however (which it 
shouldn't; it should look for such files in the control directory, right?).

Thanks, done, but ACLs still don't work as I expect.

Any other idea? If I disable the ACL plugin, everything works.
