RSS URL doesn't seem valid

First of all thanks a lot for DoggCatcher. If it would not exist, I might have gone back to Windows Mobile.
I have a problem, which might be caused by some irregularity in the RSS feed of the podcast or somethnig like this since I have about 10 podcasts, which work just fine and just one broken one.
The podcast is Distrowatch Weekly podcast (http://distrowatch.com/news/podcast.xml).
After I have added it and selected Force Update, it has following status message - "Comm Err: Can't connect to http://distrowatch.com/news/podcast.xml".
The I selected edit, tried reducing number of episodes to 1. I'm getting a windows with following error - "Description: java.lang.Exception: RSS URL doesn't seem valid: Cannot connect to http://distrowatch.com/news/podcast.xml"
It is not a network issue because I can update podcasts before and after trying to add this one without putting phone to sleep.
Also I have checked that this podcast was on-=line and available from Firefox at the very same time when I was trying to add it to DoggCatcher.
I would appreciate very much if you could have a look at this one.

Distrowatch

I've fixed this, you'll see it in the next release.

Thanks for writing up the details.
