Gallery ForceClose loop when reading an item with a JPG

I installed DoggCatcher verson 1.1.1315 on a Nexus One a day or two ago from the android app store, and it will do well what I wish for podcasts in RSS feeds; nice app.

I searched the forums and did not find anything that seemed to fit this particular problem, so I will open a new thread.

This evening I installed a new RSS feed from LeMonde, a French newspaper. The direct RSS URL is below, which is the International feed from http://www.lemonde.fr/web/rss/0,48-0,1-0,0.html.

http://www.lemonde.fr/rss/sequence/0,2-3210,1-0,0.xml

The feed syncs fine, and the articles list as having small JPG files of around 1 to 2k. When I click on an article to read it, it appears to transfer off to Gallery (the screen very quickly changes to a black background), but then Gallery immediately force closes in an infinite loop; when I press the button it comes right back. The only way to stop it is to pull the battery.

On a BBC news feed, which does not use images with its articles, everything works fine.

Share Media is set in the preferences, and I have both powered off/on and USB mounted/unmounted to force a rescan of the SD card.

Can anyone reproduce this? Or might there be a simple change that I am missing? Thanks.

Feeds with images as enclosures

That feed declares jpg images in the way that normal feeds declare audio files. Since DC can't play the file it hands it off to android to select which application handles the jpg files. In this case the android gallery crashes trying to display the image, not sure why.

You can skip the battery pull by pressing the home button a few times right after confirmation the gallery force close.

Thanks much for the response;

Thanks much for the response; I had not looked inside the feed itself. I guess for now I will pass on that one. ;)
