The feed is stored in
$KDEHOME/share/apps/akregator/Archive/$MANGLEDFEEDURL.mk4, where MANGLEDFEEDURL
is the feed's URL with some special characters replaced by _.
If you remove that file (and possible other corrupted files), Akregator should
start up again.
It seems this is a duplicate of infamous Bug 116482.
The problem is known - metakit reads the size of some entry from the file and
then allocate the memory. As the mk4 file is corrupted, the size read is a
random number - usually far too big. The OS then either prevents the allocation
(crash), or, if it is big but below the limits of the OS, it hogs tons of
memory first and then crash (reading the next field, I guess).
We haven't found a way to fix it, but hope to have Akregator ported to Akonadi
for 4.4, and get rid of metakit.
