#1252 Google Reader synchronizes feeds but not items within feeds

I followed the wizard to enable Google Reader synchronization in 1.7.0.2. My list of feeds was successfully downloaded from Google Reader but no items show up in any of the feeds. I waited a day and verified that the web-based interface shows new items, but they are not visible in RSS Bandit.

Synchronization is definitely still active, because if I add/remove feeds from the web-based interface those feeds do show up/disappear in RSS Bandit (though still with no content).

Is there specific logging that would be helpful for tracking down this problem?

    I have also seen this.
    If I pass thorugh a proxy I get different results: depending on the proxy configuration AND the way that the proxy is declared into "networking settings" in bandit, it works or it doesn't.
    When using a proxy that does require authentication, anyway, I also don't get the list.
    If it let the machine connect "directly" to the internet (without proxy and without authentication), then it works fine.

    On clarification: for "it works fine" I really meant "It sort of works". It is true that I have LOADS of feeds, but they take AGES to get all updated. Sometimes, after a few HOURS, only really A FEW feeds are actually ready for reading.

    I think when you (I) have too many feeds, there are just TOO MANY requests that start in a (relatively) short period of time.... and after the first few feeds are downloaded, the rest simply starts getting timeout errors, this is an excerpt from my log:

    To be more specific to what Matthew is reporting, is I use an authenticated proxy, i also get only the feed LIST downloaded, with even the favicons.... but I don't get ANY content actually downloaded.
    If I connect directly, the downloading starts (and succeeds for A FEW feeds) but at the same time it fails with time-outs like the above for most other feeds.
