[tex-live] tlmgr gui: update with multiple repository

if I configure tlmgr to use multiple repositories:

main =  http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet
KOMA = https://www.komascript.de/repository/texlive/2017

with active pinning for files in the KOMA repository, and if I use the GUI, 
button "Load Default", it loads only a database from http://mirror.ctan.org/
systems/texlive/tlnet. The message in the log window states:

| tlmgr: package repository http://ctan.sharelatex.com/tex-archive/systems/
texlive/tlnet (verified)

But it does not load https://www.komascript.de/repository/texlive/2017. 
Moreover it ignores my pinning for some packages in repository KOMA and shows 
updates for, e.g., koma-script from main repository.

To get updates from all repositories I need to select a dedicated main 
repository, e.g.

| tlmgr: package repositories
| 	main = ftp://ftp.fu-berlin.de/tex/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet (verified)
| 	KOMA = https://www.komascript.de/repository/texlive/2017 (verified)

is fine and it shows updates from repository KOMA, too.

This problem does not occur, if I do not use the gui but command line `tlmgr 
update --all`.

Is the different GUI behavior intended?
