[O] Problem with template expansion of previous prompts.

This syntax in capture templates does not seem to be working for me, and I can't figure out why:

%\n         Insert the text entered at the nth %^{prompt}, where n is
               a number, starting from 1.

I'm using it like this:

("a" "Addressbook templates")
("af" "Addressbook - family" entry (file+headline org-addressbook-file "Family")
"* %^{First name} %^{Middle name} %^{Last name}
:ADDRESS-H: %^{Home address}
:HOMEPHONE: %^{Home phone}

But instead of the template filling in the second reference with the values entered for, eg., {First name}, I get, (also eg.) %^A (and the ^A is highlighted, maybe a control character?)

Has this syntax maybe changed in a way not reflected in the manual?
