[Nbd] multiple exports

Trying to set up multiple exports for a nbd-server in order to share 2 versions of a linux distro to pxe clients. I can successfully set up one in the config file for nbd-server but if I add the second one in it won't work.
Last message I can find via a search of the mailing list is as follows:

What version of nbd-server?

It should be; that was the whole point of the config file thing.

However, I should admit that I've been a bit lax in testing; I know that
on a few occasions in the past, there have been problems with the
multi-export feature. It *should* work currently; but of course, if it
doesn't, that's a bug.

Has this multi-export ever been fixed? Or is it just a matter of entering the correct options in the config file? If it's the latter is there an updated example available?

Thank you
