You obviously don't understand ACL's, given the above. It looks to me like the server is acting exactly the way you told it to.

ACL's are applied as they are encountered, and stop at the first matching ACL. That means the only ACL *ever* evaluated above is:

access to * by self write

I think what you *really* are looking for here is:

access to *
	by self wite
	by * read

Which is the correct equivalent to what you wrote. Note that the above ACL set will expose user passwords if you have them in the database, so is not particularly secure.
