After configuring DHCP for UEFI boot to K2000, KBEs no longer require passwords

I followed Quest's instructions for adding the policies and making the scope changes to our DHCP server to enable UEFI booting to the K2000. This worked as expected, and I am able to image this way. But when I select a KBE to boot into, the KBE no longer requires a password before booting. All our KBEs have passwords, but they have just mysteriously stopped requesting them. Anyone know how to deal with this? Am I just going to have to make new KBEs?

The password prompts do not currently work on UEFI. This was listed under the release notes for version 4 of the K2000.

The password does not currently work with iPXE, UEFI or BIOS.  If the password is a requirement, you would need to stay with PXELinux (k2000.0) for now.  The ability to use a password with iPXE is in the works for a future version.

Has this been resolved as yet?  We are needing this password function.
