You need to add a sieve= setting to the plugin {...} section as well for 
Dovecot v1.1. So copy it to there from the protocol managesieve {...} 
section. This duplicate configuration is removed for v1.2. With your 
current configuration it is looking for the Sieve script in the user's 
home directory (~/.dovecot.sieve) if he even has one.

Enable mail_debug to see what it is doing.
