Just tried the same thing here on 10.7.3 and it worked for me.
The only thing I can think of is to make sure the script you think is attached to the folder is the one that is attached.
If you right click the folder and select Folder Action Setups you'll get the Folder Actions Setup window. Select the folder you attached the script to that should show you the name of the script attached to the folder. Then select the script and choose Edit. That will open the script in Automator. Make sure it is the correct script.
With the autosaving in Lion I've had cases where the version of the script I thought was attached wasn't actually the one that was attached.

Not to be too much of a neophyte, but I am unsure about how to create a folder action at all. (I'm trying to create one to automatically send a file to Evernote). When I right-click on a folder, I do not see the "Folder Action" choice in the menu. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong but not sure what.
I'm attaching a screenshot of what I see when I right-click a folder:

How you attach a script to a folder depends on how you are making the script.
The easiest way to begin with is to use Automator. When you open Automator one of the templates creates a folder action. In the Automator workflow you specify which folder to attach to. If you need to do more complex things then Automator can do you can always write an Applescript (or shell script) and have the Automator workflow run the script.
If you are trying to attach a pure Applescript there are a few ways to do that. You can do it in the script itself, you can write a script that attaches another script or you can access the folder actions setup window for any folder via the folders Services menu item
Once in the setup window you can attach and modify scripts. Further questions regarding this should be directed to Mac OS X Technologies
