"scratchpad move" command having no effect in i3 4.1.2

I'm using i3 4.1.2 as shipped with Ubuntu Precise [1] and have the following statements in my .i3/config:

bindsym $mod+m move scratchpad
bindsym $mod+Shift+M scratchpad show

The config appears to be accepted (no errors on reload/restart of i3), however $mod+m doesn't seem to have any effect on my current window. Is the scratchpad supported in this version of i3?

Thanks. Might be worth mentioning in the userguide when referring to new(ish) features?
