How to suppress paste mask pad

I have created fiducials which are essentially sm pads.  I don't want there to be paste placed on the fiducials, so I have a pad of size 0 on the paste mask layer in the padstack, but CAM still generates a pad on the paste mask.  How do I suppress the generation of the pastemask pad? According to the documentation (file:///C:/MentorGraphics/9.0.2PADS/docs/htmldocs/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm?href=padslayout_user/title1.html&tab=search&ihub=padslayout_ih) the pad stack layer is highest precedence, yet it seems to be ignored.
