Potential bug.

Consistently get the following with the nightly build (and previous 6.5 nightlies)

There was an error loading the remote feed for : (Can't use string (" http://www.mbn.org/AllSites/Ima") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at /PerlApp/Slim/Formats/XML.pm line 210. )

The URL for the podcast is:
and works fine using Juice.

Well that feed is breaking RSS 2.0 by having a URL right in the image element like this:


When it should be:

<title>Image Title</title>

By the way, I fixed that crash, and in this feed's case it will use the itunes:image element instead.

Great. I will look for the next nightly.

P.S. I've did notify the webadmin at this site that they might consider cleaning up their XML.
