Just looks like a bug.

Yup. I tested and using capital letters causes this behaviour.

You will have to change the rights somehow. Should be able to do it with 
a PHP or perl script.

Correct, need to remove the wrong ACL and put the correct one on. For 

sam user/asaude asaudetodelete ''
sam user/asaude asaude lrswipkxtecda

First sam deletes the wrong ACL, second sam adds the correct one.

Of course those only get the InBox. For folders you will have to also do 
something like:

sam user/asaude/* asaudetodelete ''
sam user/asaude/* asaude lrswipkxtecda
