About using the 'snap to' tool in Autodesk Maya 8.5 (Personal Learning Edition), what am I doing wrong?

According to my lecture videos (I'm a distance education student), I need to select the edit point of the curve I wish to edit with the middle mouse button and hold down C to have the edit point stick/snap to another curve.
I can make the snap work when I'm creating a curve, I can make it snap to the grid, I can make it snap to points but I can not get it to snap to another curve.
When I'm attempting to snap to the curve, the visual cues seem right. The point is a yellow X surrounded by a yellow circle, and the three-coloured move axes are in place. I can move the point, it just won't acknowledge the curve at all. The curve is on the same layer as the curve I'm trying to edit.
I have had a long email conversation with my lecturer who can't work out what the problem is. Any ideas?
