Routing between VRFs on S8?

The below configuration works on an N1 running 07.62.06.0004, but not on an S8 running 08.11.04.0006.

By working, I mean the interface in vrf test2 can be pinged from the CLI in vrf test1 and vice versa.

Does anyone know if the behaviour has changed from 7.x to 8.x?

# **** VRF test1 ****
set router vrf create test1 context test1
router test1
configure terminal
!
interface vlan.0.1000
ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 primary
no shutdown
exit
!
# Static routes configured on routed interfaces
ip route 192.168.2.0/24 vrf test2 1
!
!
exit
exit
!
# **** VRF test2 ****
set router vrf create test2 context test2
router test2
configure terminal
!
interface vlan.0.2000
ip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0 primary
no shutdown
exit
!
# Static routes configured on routed interfaces
ip route 192.168.1.0/24 vrf test1 1
!
!
exit
exit

Official Response
This has finally been corrected in firmware release 8.22.01.0022 / 8.22.01.0023 that was released yesterday :-)

From the Problems Corrected section of the release notes:

"Static route leaking between non-global VRFs does not work. The routes are not promoted to the FIB."
