H. Peter, I tried 3.50-pre10 as well, but same thing?
It's like this option is being totally ignored - I must have something
Wrong or missing maybe? It should be a pretty simple thing of these
3 files in /tftpboot and a config file /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg - not much
else involved correct?

That is really bizarre.
Are you sure you have updated the menu.c32/vesamenu.c32 module to match
pxelinux.0? (I'm asking because sometimes we have people reporting bugs
which turn out to be version mismatches.)
The other thing to do is to add debugging messages to the source code
(com32/modules/menumain.c) and try to figure out why it doesn't display
the password input box.
I'm at a loss, because I can't reproduce your failure. Just to be
paranoid, does 3.50-pre10 also fail for you?
