you're right, "superslave" doesn't work today.

This will work with the final version of 4.2, and probably 4.0.2-rc2.
For 4.0.2-rc1, you need to use "supermaster"

We changed the setting name to make it easier/more obvious, but only realised it
once -rc1 had been released.

So, the documentation [1] is correct for 4.0.2-rc2 and ownward.
And this is also listed in the "Upgrade" notes [2].
