Subscribed to the BBC's News feed I see more than that  - somewhere in the region of 30+ articles. 

>According to the RSS "specification" (comment #2 - is this specification available online?) this behaviour is correct, which in my mind leaves the news reader application fundamentally broken. When using regular updates, the application will only ever display a handful of the latest articles, deleting any previous articles you may not have read, which is useless!! :)

It seems to do that - some from this morning have scrolled but there are no stats to allow me to tell how many are cached.

>I'd appreciate any feedback here (or in the bug - even a vote) to confirm if you believe the current behaviour is correct (in which case it's just myself and Jakub that have issues!) or if you agree with myself and Jakub - the news reader is broken.
