Description From 2002-05-02 18:20:11
When a set of packages retrieved during install is scattered between several
CD-ROMs, only the first CD-ROM mount succeeds. Subsequent requests to packages
available on other CD-ROMs fail to access CD-ROM repositories with the \'Wrong
CD\' message, instead of prompting the user to switch the CD-ROM. As a result,
the packages are retrieved from the alternative repositories on the network;
the \'--no-download\' option doesn\'t prevent such fallback requests via FTP.

Hm, wonder if it's still there for 0.5.x (don't have mutli-CD repos at hand)...
