Thunderbird Annoyances

[ #23067 ]
For a while, I've been trying to abuse XML::RSS to generate RDF listings of our company news. Thunderbird seems to work just fine when I use the POD example but when I change the slightest detail, it b0rks. Instead of 10, I get just one entry.

for(1..10)
{ #$rss->add_item( title => "GTKeyboard 0.8$_",
# link => "http://freshmeat.net/news/1999/06/21/930003829$_.html"
# );
# This works!
$rss->add_item( title => "La $_",
link => "http://freshmeat.net/news/1999/06/21/930003829$_.html"
);
}


I used $_ to have a unique title (which apparently ALSO matters). I tested this in one of those aggregators in Firefox and it works fine there... but it fails on Thunderbird. *ARGH*
