Problem reading a WP 2.2.x feed on WP 2.2.3 (1 post)

    I have parent and child installations of WordPress. They use the feedlist plugin to display each others' headlines.

    They were running WP 2.0.6 and all was well. I upgraded the child to 2.2.1 and all was well.

    Then I upgraded the parent to 2.2.3 and the parent could show several other feeds through feedlist, but could no longer display this particular child's headlines. [Didn't check the other direction since the parent isn't out of test yet.]

    Problem feed: rwc.aauwnc.org/feed/ which looks fine in all the other RSS display tools I've checked.

    I turned off all plugins (including feedlist) in the parent and investigated using the sample code for fetch_rss, and couldn't show the headlines from the child until I added

    include_once(ABSPATH . WPINC . '/rss-functions.php');

    to the page that was trying to display the headlines.

    Is that an appropriate workaround for fetch_rss? Should its documentation be changed to include rss-functions.php INSTEAD of rss.php?? Is it okay to include them both?
