> I can't confirm parsing problems with any of the reported feeds.
Well, there was a new article, since then, in the "http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/news/feed/" feed, and it was fetched and displayed normally (no date problem, and the article is kept).
If someone have some time to check the functions related to RSS 2 feed parsing, and date parsing/conversion, for any problem which could create dates like I (and the two other reporters) had, maybe something could be found...
Maybe the workaround in comment #1 could be applied, temporarily, with debug informations (feed address, fetch date, entry title, original date data -with non-ASCII chars in hexadecimal, to easily detect encoding problems, if there is-, parsed date, and final conversion as it appears in Akregator) to stderr or some temporary log file, and a warning to users, so they might report the context in which the problem happened (some general informations might be added to the log, notably the versions used).
Well, it seems pretty rare, and I don't have much time to test things myself, so I won't insist.

Seven days, and I guess this is simply how it works, for now, with Akregator... (only taking into account the article dates, instead of the fetch date, to remove archived articles, as I suggested in comment #3). It's a usability problem, maybe someone already opened a enhancement request (I don't have the time to check and open a new one, though).
