At startup RSSBandit hung at the 'Loading main gui...'
stage so it had to kill it. I don't think this was
RSSBandit's fault - my computer was snafu. On reboot,
the feedlist.xml file had been replaced by a file of similar
length but that was completely empty. I replaced it with
the .xml.bak file and got my data back, but it seemed a
bit odd.

    I'm not sure there is a problem here. Your computer seemed
    to have crashed while RSS Bandit was writing to the
    feedlist.xml file and you recovered the file from the backup.

    Then the list of feeds (which is readable and hardly every
    changes) and the contents of those feeds (ie the articles
    posted) should be separate. The crash not only lost the
    articles, which I can easily recover by refreshing the list, but
    also the feed subscription list, which I cannot recover easily.

    No big deal since I was able to get it back from the .bak file,
    but I don't think this is ideal.
