Strange. I use it in multiple wikis and it works.

The last one was ever called "acl_rights_default". We love common 
prefixes. ;) That didnt change from 1.1 to 1.2.x.

ACLs are processed from left to right, so it is a good idea to list the 
more special ones left of the more common ones:

#acl Known:read All:read

Or, as "Known" is not able to do more than "All" anyway, just:

#acl All:read

This is just because the default of "acl_rights_default" (set in 
config.py) allows editing anyway.

Maybe try to stop the wiki, remove *.pickle and start it again with 1.2.1.
