Are you authenticating with sieveshell as a cyrus admin user? I can't
remember the details of how it works, but it is possible to create
"global" sieve scripts, which is probably done as the cyrus admin user.
You really shouldn't be giving admin rights to a regular IMAP user
account. Use a separate account as cyrus admin.
