[wp-hackers] Permalink behavior with a feed name = sub category slug

I have in my blog a custom feed which has the same name as a sub
category (resp. the category slug) of my blog. Both having the name/slug
"podcast" for example. Further I'm using the permalink structure "Day
and name" of WP.

The feed address would be http://undeuxoutrois.de/wp/feed/podcast
This works as expected.

But when I like to see the category view of the category "podcast" which
is in this example a sub category of the "oberkategorie" I use the URL
http://undeuxoutrois.de/wp/category/oberkategorie/podcast .
But I end up always seeing the custom feed content.

I could use http://undeuxoutrois.de/wp/category/podcast to see the
category view of the category podcast. That works. But e.g. the category
widget of the WP uses the longer link above.

Is it not allowed to have a feed named like a sub category slug?
Is this a bug of WP?

I'm using WP 2.9.2 for this blog and my .htacces file has only the
following standard lines:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /wp/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /wp/index.php [L]
# END WordPress
