Indeed.  Your ruleset line expands to 6 rules after preprocessing, and
each rule can output at most 1 candidate password for 1 wordlist line.

With 1.7.5-jumbo-2 (and newer, when available) you can do something like:

/?v op[aeiou] Q
%2?v op[aeiou] Q /?v op[aeiou]
%3?v op[aeiou] Q %2?v op[aeiou] /?v op[aeiou]
%4?v op[aeiou] Q %3?v op[aeiou] %2?v op[aeiou] /?v op[aeiou]

In fact, for the word "bardine" the last one of these four lines does
not matter (it only slows things down a bit).

For the word "bardine", the above ruleset lines produce 124 candidate
passwords, all of which are unique.  The word itself is excluded.

If you want to add "y" to the set of vowels, it is trivial to do so for
the replacement characters, but not easy for the characters you search
for.  So perhaps you'll only add it to the replacements.  I didn't do it
in the examples above in order to keep them more consistent.
