Focus Assist w/ K-01 and AF360FGz/AF540FGz

I was wondering...the manual says that the in-flash-focus-assist should work when combining the K-01 and either of the 360/540 (just as it does on the K10D).

Alas, tried it out this evening - didn't work: the green on-body focus assist beam comes on, but the flash focus assist is just not cooperating.

A quick search on the forum came across a thread from quite some time ago indicating, that it might have been a problem - but it didn't seem definitive and the thread pointed to page 222 in the K-01 manual, which states that it should work.

Anybody managed to make it work? There doesn't seem to be an obvious menu setting that corresponds to this, but I've likely gone mind-numb so I may be missing something....any help?

I couldn't get the K-01 to work with the AF assist on my 360 either.

Don't have any Pentax Flashes, but with Metz, green on-body focus assist beam comes on, but the flash focus assist is not coming on..
No idea on where to change any settings to it.

Hmm, that suxx. The manual clearly states that it should work, doesn't it?

Time to harass Pentax, then, methinks...
