3-way switch not working

I had two 3-way switches to control a light, and I replaced one of them with a 3-way dimmer switch. Before the light turned on/off properly, now it only works in certain combinations of on and off at each location. (3-way dimmer has a dimmer and a separate on/off switch)

I thought I wired it correctly according to the diagram and I tried switching the two black wires to see if that made a difference. Any other ideas?

You seem to have the same problem as was discussed in this thread and I think the solution is the same too.
