Cannot stage an SMT mirrored repository

After marking a catalog for staging within the Yast2 smt module, and then clicking on the "Staging" tab, the repository shows as never having been mirrored.

This error is also seen if "yast2 smt" is started from a commandline:

Use of unintialized value in string eq at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/SMT/Parser/ line 399, <STDIN> line 3 (#1)

Because the timestamp on the mirrored repository shows "Never Mirrored", it is impossible to create snapshots or do any filtering for tests.


Apply smt-1.1.19-0.6.1.rpm (or greater), along with any other SMT related patches it needs to resolve dependency issues.
