Jim, sorry about the slow response - I must have missed your post in the
daily digest. I am subscribing to the RSS feed. I have just tested with
the Atom feed: same " Refresh feed 'xxx' failed with error: Object
reference not set to an instance of an object" error. I have no
extensions installed. I am testing 'cgi_img_auth.php' to secure access to
the upload directory.
I have no problems viewing/formatting or subscribing to the RSS file from
either Firefox or IE7. When I use RSSBandit to fetch the RSS feed from a
TypePad protected weblog, I see TypePad responding with an HTTP 401 error,
which causes the browser to request username/password credentials. I have
to assume RSSBandit knows how to respond to this request. MediaWiki puts
up the sign-in page - I suspect RSSBandit thinks it is getting RSS/Atom
information and gets confused in the process.

> * Are you trying to subscribe to the RSS feed or Atom feed in RSS
> * What extensions (if any) do you have installed on your wiki?
