/etc/slapt-getrc modification fails to influence slapt-get


I have modified the /etc/slapt-getrc file to search several sites due to slapt-get having a problem downloading from one of them (SOURCE=http://www3.linuxpackages.net/packages/Slackware-9.1/).
When I :wq the file and run slapt-get, it appears to not search any of the sites that I've uncommented and still tries to download the commented problem site. Why is it ignoring the slapt-getrc changes?

forget it. I needed to --update slapt-get after modifying the file.
