This *IS* normal acquisition behaviour.

I use the following rule of thumb:

  When Zope looks up a name "n" for object "o" in context "c",
  then Zope lools for "n" in "o". If this fails, Zope
  walks up from "o" towards the root in search for "n".
  Only, if it does not find "n" on this route, it looks
  in the context "c" for "n".

In your case, the object is "sql" and the name is "show_abc".
The context is "Folder1" in the first and "Folder2" in the
second case. But "show_abc" is found in both cases in
the parent of "sql" -- without looking at the context.
