RSS feed error (poss. QTranslate related): tag doesn't close properly (1 post)

    Hello,
    can anybody please help me solve a huge RSS problem?

    I am running a bilingual website via the QTranslate plugin, and one RSS feed just won't work.

    website.com/it/feed - works perfectly (and it is the non-base language!)

    website.com/feed - doesn't work

    When I run the feed through a validator, it is apparent that the problem is a non-closing <category> tag, as in the following example.
    Instead of:

    <category><![CDATA[tag1tag2

    Now an explanation: QTranslate defines post tags as

    [:en]English tag[:it]Italian tag

    and in fact the website/it/feed version correctly displays them as:

    <category><![CDATA[[:en]English tag[:it]Italian tag]]></category>
    <category><![CDATA[[:en]English tag2[:it]Italian tag2]]></category>

    etc.

    However, the website/feed version mangles them as:

    <category><![CDATA[[:en]English tag1English tag2
    etc.

    I have already submitted this question to the QTranslate support forum, but got no response.
    I have not customized the plugin and I am using it by the book, so I suspect something else might cause the error.

    Can anybody suggest a possible solution?

    Thank you in advance for your help!
