When trying to display an rss feed in conky 1.9.0-2 conky starts with no errors but randomly will shut down my rss config and give me
this error:

    Hmm... are you sure you pasted the whole error message? I am pretty sure there is a part of it missing.

    Also, could you try using the version from git (branch 1.9.1)? I have a feeling this problem might have been fixed already,
