One of the reasons I upgraded to MW 1.12 from 1.11 was because some  
people using Firefox (latest I think) and Opera (latest) were  
reporting problems with adding RSS feed from the Recent:Changes page.   
On 1.11 it had been working fine with Safari but I too noticed when  
using Opera the problem which I'll note here.  The upgrade to 1.12  
didn't change the behavior.  Safari has no problem with the XML, only  
Opera and FF (though others might as well).  The following error  
happens with either RSS or Atom feeds:

XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
Location: http://tig.colorist.org/wiki3/index.php?title=Special:Recentchanges&feed=rss
Line Number 1, Column 2: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

(where that upward-arrow character is pointing to the "<" character as  
part of the "?xml version" tag)
