It's also not working for me in a test environment, even with a pattern
like .*$ which should match anything. It works with patterns set as the
Deny Filenames value, e.g.

Deny Filenames = \.jpg$

but of course that's not what you want. I don't know why it isn't
working with rule sets. I'm investigating.
