Long ago I had that issue.  This doesn't work for me ...

1. edit rules
2. run rules manually

... just as you have noticed.

However, if I change it to ...

1. edit rules for mailbox 'foo'
2. switch to some other mailbox (doesn't matter which one)
3. switch back to mailbox 'foo'
4. run rules manually

... then the rules work as expected.

Seems like the rules are somehow enacted when you switch to a
mailbox and not upon editing them.  I have always intended to file a
bug report, but ... I am a lousy user, I guess.
