> Hi Eugene, thanks for the answer. I have just un-installed PK for now,
have not had any time to play with it. I will see if I get some time I take
a closer look into what is going on. I have not
forced the refresh so probably it was this a cause to still having the data
of the mirror in.

Blacklisting is also an option and will try it, but I think it will be
quite some of them to be listed in the conf file.
