    When I attempt to access this feed RSS Owl hangs indefinitely:

    http://www.siliconmicrodisplay.com/1/feed

    Version is 2.1.2.

    I discovered that the feed does not properly define the title attribute, and
    so it looks like RSSowl is experiencing a buffer overflow when attempting to
    parse the title. The workaround is to uncheck the option to use the title as
    the name when adding the feed.
