Instead of making a new bug, you could attach the data also to:

You could do something like following in the X terminal
(can be found under Utilities in the applications menu):
	tar -zcf /media/mmc1/rss.tgz /home/user/.osso_rss_feed_reader/

(this assumes you have the memory card in mmc1 slot)

And then connect the device USB cable to PC and attach the rss.tgz
archive from the card to the bug.

The above listed bug mentions a workaround for the RSS issue.  Could you
first try that and see whether it works for you and add comment about
that to the bug?
