Yeah its been doing this for a while. This just makes the "switch to
another mirror" feature make even less sense. Why would anyone want it
to switch to another mirror, but then NOT install the packages?

The ability to force a mirror switch is handy, but ctrl-c is the wrong
key for it. How about escape instead?

The most annoying thing regards with swithing mirror, is you could
only know the mirror you switched from, not the one switched to. This
seems contrary with the intention of random mirrors, and what I need
should be yum-fastestmirror..

bbbush ^_^
