One particular podcast (tiesto clublife from radio 538) downloads OK but the download remains in status "downloading" even after completion. This means that at the next update it is downloaded again (and again and again)

    Ditto for http://surprisinglyfree.com/category/podcast/feed/

    It appears to be a problem with non-ascii characters in the podcast name.
