The most important sentence is:
control checking stops at the first match of the <what> and
<who> clause, unless otherwise dictated by the <control> clause.
According to your rule set checking will stop at the first rule, that
is " access to * by * none".
In order to check your rule sets run slapd in debugging mode -d acl.
