According to the man page, that will remove *all* rpms, not only those

And after trying it, I found out that it did *not* remove the rpms of
the packages I installed manually. Neither did zypper clean --all.

I'd say this calls for a a bug report.

I find it hard to believe that this is a bug. My gut tells me it's just
a "simple" configuration issue, but I don't know.

Anyway before I file a bug report, I would appreciate it if someone
could confirm.

Test scenario:

$ ls -l /var/cache/zypper/RPMS
Download VMware server from the VMware website (or any other RPM that
isn't in one of the repo's)
# zypper in file-you-have-downloaded.rpm
$ ls -l /var/cache/zypper/RPMS
# zypper clean --all
$ ls -l /var/cache/zypper/RPMS

Please let me know what happens. If anyone else still sees files in
/var/cache/zypper/RPMS after zypper clean --all, then I'll file a bug
report. If not, then I'll assume it's just a misconfiguration on my end,
better known as PEBKAC ;-)

the proper dir. is: /var/cache/zypp/packages

Ooopsy. Are you sure that it *is* .../cache/*zypp* and not zypper?

The OP and others accept that zypper is the correct sub-dir.
