Searched for this issue before submitting this and didn't find anything.

Log message claims that Feed url is updated upon 301 redirect, but

way.  Try http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot
(21:13:15) Amazon: ok, that worked thanks
(21:15:10) linuxcolumbus: I just cut and pasted an rss link from /. for
a particular category and it did the same thing.  must be a bug in
aggregator.  If you get a chance could you check, if not I can.

(21:22:25) linuxcolumbus: Yep,  I looked through the bug list and
didn't see anything.
