Dovecot sieve and vacation - does not work?

I have installed Fedora9 with dovecot and sieve plugin.
I have created $HOME/.dovecot.sieve with following content
 require "vacation";
 if header :contains "from" "me@site.tld"
 {
    vacation "I'm away till testing end";
 }

yet it's not working. I even tried following content only
 vacation "I'm away till testing end";

not working as well.

after I receive a message $HOME/.dovecot.sievec is created(means sieve plugin works) yet no $HOME/.dovecot.lda-dupes as expected.
Note, that I'm sending message from me@site.tld, which is external account(say gmail).

If I configured dovecot/deliver to run in debug mode, sieve puts following messages to the syslog
Oct 28 15:16:15 mail deliver(user): cmusieve: Using sieve path: /home/user/.dovecot.sieve
Oct 28 15:16:15 mail deliver(user): cmusieve: Executing script /home/user/.dovecot.sievec

and nothing else. no information about any reply.

What next?

This is an example I've found
require ["fileinto", "vacation"];
# Move spam to spam folder
if exists "X-Spam-Flag" {
  fileinto "spam";
  # Stop here so that we do not reply on spams
  stop;
}
vacation
  # Reply at most once a day to a same sender
  :days 1
  :subject "Out of office reply"
  # List of recipient addresses which are included in the auto replying.
  # If a mail's recipient is not on this list, no vacation reply is sent for it.
  :addresses ["j.doe@company.dom", "john.doe@company.dom"]
"I'm out of office, please contact Joan Doe instead.
Best regards
John Doe";
Look at the >addresses line!

Hi,
the following hint was useful for one of my colleagues>

A list of autoreplied senders is stored in .dovecot.lda-dupes file in user's home directory.
The reply is sent only once in the number of configured days. If you've problems getting the vacation reply, try deleting this file. If that didn't help, make sure the problem isn't related to sending mails in general by trying the "reject" Sieve command.
The automatic replies aren't sent if any of the following is true:
Auto-Submitted: header exists with any value except "no"
Precedence: header exists with value "junk", "bulk" or "list"
The envelope sender
begins with "MAILER-DAEMON" (case-insensitive)
begins with "LISTSERV" (case-insensitive)
begins with "majordomo" (case-insensitive)
begins with "owner-" (case-sensitive)
contains the string "-request" anywhere within it (case-sensitive)
The envelope sender and envelope recipient are the same
The envelope recipient is not found in the message To:, Cc: or Bcc: fields.
A bare username without a domain gets canonicalised by the libsieve code to "<username>@unspecified-domain", which means it is highly unlikely to pass the last two tests in the list above.

Yes - I have read the text from http://wiki.dovecot.org/LDA/Sieve#head-f083c4265adca5ce0fecf17d7684bd2dedbd5812 already.
Anything else?

Sorry, this was an overlap.
No, nothing else from my side.
I could ask my colleague when he's back, but that's all I could do.

Damn, You right. The stupid sieve could not resolve my address correctly.
From the http://www.pmdf.process.com/app-notes/sieve/draft-showalter-sieve-vacation-01.html
"Users can supply additional mail addresses that are theirs with the ":addresses" argument, which takes a string-list listing additional addresses that a user might have."

I just assumed it will find my address. I wonder what it found instead.
