Versioning Aspect not applied

I am trying to set Alfresco up to automatically version Word and Excel files. I have set up my rule as follows:

Rule conditions:
Item has a mimetype of 'Microsoft Word 2007' 
Item has a mimetype of 'Microsoft Excel 2007' 
Name property matches '*.docx' 
Name property matches '*.doc' 
Name property matches '*.xls' 
Name property matches '*.xlsx' 
Item has a mimetype of 'Microsoft Word' 
Item has a mimetype of 'Microsoft Excel' 

Rule actions:
Add aspect 'Versionable' 

Details:
Type:   Items are created or enter this folder 
Title:   Auto document versioning 
Description:   

Other Options selected:
Apply rule to sub spaces
Run rule in background

Despite the above setup, if I upload a new file to any space, including the root space, the versioning aspect is not applied. I can manually enable it perfectly fine on a per-file basis, but the content rule is never applied.

The versioning aspect is not added whether I upload using CIFS, FTP or the web interface.

Running Alfresco Community 3.3 on Server 2008 R2.
