The last attempt with my ACLs:

access to dn.regex="ou=Address Book,uid=([^,]+),ou=([^,]+),dc=nodomain$"

In addition to Aaron's response, the most important thing to always remember about ACL's in OpenLDAP is that they *stop* at the first applicable ACL unless you have a "by * break" statement. So all that will ever be evaluated from your above ACLs is the very first clause, because it catches everything. None of your ACLs past that point will ever be looked at.
