10.1 - YaST Installation Source, Local Directory

Hi,
I was trying to add /home/<user name> as a local directory where to search
for rpm packages:
Add...
Local Directory...
/home<user name>
[OK]
I always hit the following error:
Unable to create installation source
from URL 'dir:///home/<user name>'

I'm sure I could use it that way with 10.0. I used to download rpms to my
home and install them from there through YaST Software Management feature.

Is this how it is supposed to work or is it a possible bug?
What's your experience?

Thanks,
-mw
