Subject: Some actions do not auto-populate the CPAN::SQLite database
Problem discovered in Strawberry Perl. Most CPAN.pm actions will populate or update the index automatically (the desired behaviour). If CPAN::SQLite is installed, and CPAN.pm configured to use it (via editing the CPAN/Config.pm file), some actions continue to auto-generate the CPAN::SQLite database as normal. For example, the "install module" works correctly. However, some actions seem to fail if the cpandb.sql is not present, such as the "r" command, and do NOT auto-setup the cpandb.sql database in the same way they auto-setup the regular index.

Thanks for pointing this out. This should be fixed in the latest svn CPAN.pm, in combination with the soon-to-be-on-CPAN CPAN-SQLite-0.195.
