I don't recall a bug like this.  Could you report it to
bugs.maemo.org and attach to the bug the contents of your
device "/home/user/.osso_rss_feed_reader/" directory?

If you mail the bug number to the list, others can then check
whether those RSS feed reader settings & cache trigger the same
issue for them.

You could also install "strace" according to instructions here:

Check with that what RSS feed reader does when/after it gets stuck:
	strace -p $(pidof osso_rss_feed_reader|cut -d' ' -f1)

And attach that information to the bug too.
