[Rubygems-developers] Why is ruby gems always updating when using "--source" ?

when i did something pretty easy like
gem specification ackbar --remote --verbose --source "http://gems.rubyforge.org"

Then i get an output:

Missing metadata for 3153 gems
Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org/
connection reset after 2 requests, retrying

and have to wait a long long time, but without --source it does it
immediately (well still slow but at least without any updates).
