I almost didn't notice at first, but here's the problem line. Runall needs to 
start with a capital R. dirvish-runall didn't find a Runall directive, so it 
found zero vaults to run, which is why it claimed to finish successfully.

I didn't know this until I tested it on a hunch and then looked to see if I 
could find the documentation for it. The distinction is noted in the 
dirvish.conf manpage: "Options whose names with an initial capital  (ex:  Foo)  
are  discarded  by  dirvish itself but may be used by support utilities."
