Hmm.. for people generating the RSS files, watch what you put in the guid field. For users, try to track down where Thunderbird reads the guid and see how it deals with bad characters. I'm not putting any more time into it, since I fixed my RSS feed.

So what exactly does that mean? Is there a fix?

I've been doing a bunch of testing today, and found that it depends a lot on valid characters for the guid part of an item. A $ in the guid was screwing up my rss feed.

No, unfortunately I have not had the time to look into this further, but I'm hopeful that I'll tackle it soon.

It's nice to know I am not alone in experiencing these duplicated RSS entries. It didn't happen in the beginning but even after upgrading to 1.0.2, I still have the problem. Hopefully, a problem will be found and emailed to everyone on this page. :-)

I hope to be looking into this and related t-bird rss issues soon and will post my results. Thanks for the feedback!

If you figure out why the duplicate items appear - I would appreciate a note from you.

I'm having the same problem with duplicate feeds, though everyone of the fifty or so feeds respawns new dupes everytime I shut down and then restart Thunderbird. I haven't figured out how to fix the problem.
