Lock Help - New Cylinder

I'm trying to change the cylinder in my doors - normally an easy task.

I got some shiney new cylinders (paying an arm and a leg as they are swiss standard and not euro cylinders).

Slot them in, and they operate the latch... but not the deadbolt. That is to say, turning one way retracts the latch, so that works. But if I turn the other way (to lock the door), it binds and wont turn to action the deadbolt.

Slide the old cylinder in, and it works fine.

Any ideas? They look identical (bar brand -replacing KABA for MUL-T-Locks)
