Anyone get this working with Smoothie and jumpered stepper signals?

I’m using smoothie and I have been trying to get this working all day… I have 5 cables, with X on the alpha and delta steppers with a jumper as in the smoothie instructions (http://smoothieware.org/cnc-mill-guide#toc30), Y on beta and epsilon steppers with a jumper cable, and Z on gamma. Basically I can map the steppers to all 5 spots, but whatever I do the jumpered stepper cables don’t seem to be doing anything. Has anyone tried this configuration and gotten it to work? I know I can switch to running them in series, but I’d really prefer to have a separate cable for each.
