I believe that enable/disable only applies to YaST.  The sources can still be
there and active in zen/zmd even when disabled in YaST. Deleting the repo in
YaST probably deleted the repo in ZEN/ZMD as well.

At the command line, what is the output from 'rug sl' and 'rug ca'?
(You might have to be root to do this). These will tell you what repos
ZEN/ZMD is using.
