Does anyone know if the Sigma 500mm f4.5 HSM (non DG version) auto-focuses ok with a 1.4x tele (such as a Kenko Teleplus Pro)?

I read that this combination works OK on older Nikons (but not the D2X "for some reason").

My Sigma 400mm APO Macro autofocuses flawlessly with the D70 and the 1.4x Kenko, but it overexposes ~1 f-stop on the D200 (but at least it does AF).
