I could reproduce this in Zope 2.1.6.

I can understand that the result is not what one wants, but
when I understand aquisition correct, it is in accordance
with the documentation.

  You probably get "catalog" by aquisition. The catalogs
  aquisition context is inherited to the "Result" object
  and then to the "Record" objects representing the
  lookup results.
  As I understand, a feature request to such a record
  first follows the aquisition chain of catalog
  and only then the aquicition chain that led to

I could not reproduce this in my Zope installation.

Do your Record objects (results of "dtml-in") have a "foo" field
(maybe inherited)?
