Just to clarify: it wasn't the slash causing the problem, but by
removing it pkgin will have refreshed the database as the repository
has changed, so if it was stale data causing the problem then just
removing the slash would have fixed it.

FWIW this really isn't supported.  You should only use multiple
repositories if each of the repositories contains distinct packages.
Mixing will cause problems, as you've discovered, which may exhibit in
odd behaviour like that described.
