Mental Ray Passes with IBL

my friend lit a teapot with IBL, and he just has the image based lighting as the only light source. He wanted to render out different passes so he creates a couple of render layers for like shadows, ao, and beauty. and in the beauty layer he set up a couple of passes (indirect, spec, diffuse, reflection) within the layer, but when it renders, it renders the beauty fine, and every other pass within it comes out black.

like there is no alpha whatsoever (or maybe there was not too sure), and yeah nothing worked. what’s even more weird is the fact that the moment an ACTUAL LIGHT is inserted in the scene, every pass works.

all of the other layers (ao and shadow) works just fine, just this layer with all the passes do not work. and this is being rendered in mental ray, what could be the problem?
