Well, apart from any consideration strictly related to your issue, you
should be using 2.3 (2.4 is not released yet but in alpha, so it's not

The fact that the above rules do not seem to work sounds odd, as they're
known to work as suggested.  How can you tell they ever get used?  Did you
run slapd with "acl" debug level enabled (with 2.2, OR 128 to the log
level).  My guess is that you have broader ACLs in place that get called
before the suggested ones.  I suggest you post your entire slapd.conf
(after appropriate sanitization for any sensistive info).
