[Bioperl-l] PPM and repository

Dear all,

I use ActivePerl under windows XP. I would like PPM to
search a specific and new added repository instead of
the default one. I follow the commands and add a new
repository as following: 

rep add Bioperl http://bioperl.org/DIST

After that I check and make sure the new repository is
on the list.  Then I inactivate others except the new
added one. I type on the command line:
search Bioperl.  I get Bioperl module show up. But to
my surprise PPM always check the default one which
comes from ActiveState.

So my question: which repository does PPM really
search now? Why does PPM always search the default one
even  it is inactivated?
