CPAN Shell, Bundles and downloading specific versionsby skazat (Hermit)

skazat has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been recently toying with the CPAN shell and specifically bundles. I've come across a problem with one of the features of Bundles, namely, the idea that you can set what version of a CPAN bundle you'd like to have downloaded and installed. As I understand, in the =head1 CONTENTS part of your bundle, you list modules like so:
If you'd like to set the specific version that you wanted to download, you'd specify the version after the name:
Easy enough, very clean. The problem is that this doesn't seem to work! and the CPAN shell will be more than happy to download the newest version of the module that's available. As a real world example, I have a Bundle that looks like this:
Even though 1.005 of HTML::FromText is selected, version 2.05 will always be installed.
Am I missing something obvious, or is there a "gotcha" somewhere that I'm not getting?
