Forgive me for being dense, but doesn't a 304 get returned when a  
feed is not changed? In other words, if a post is made, the feed  
changes. But then the next time the feed is accessed by Feedburner,  
the feed is not changed so FB will get a 304 kicking off this bug?  
That to me, _would_ seem like the end of the world, but maybe I'm not  
completely comprehending the issue.

I have not seen a problem yet on b5 blogs but I'm holding my breath.  
Maybe it's time to do an upgrade to r7225 (assuming 7225 has the  
commit that fixes this)?
