    As soon as I upgraded my wordpress today, I started getting this error while adding this Feed URL in my blog http://feeds.feedburner.com/gmat-verbal . It was working fine before. Please help.

    Warning: Attempt to assign property of non-object in /blog/wp-includes/rss.php on line 440

    2.5.1 didn't break it if you were running 2.5 before. The rss.php has not changed in over 4 months:

    I still get the same error, especially with the feedburner feeds ONLY ....

    Here is the error:
    Warning: Attempt to assign property of non-object in [path]/blog/wp-includes/rss.php on line 440

    I had this problem too and I tracked it down to the serialize / unserialize code in rss.php. For some feeds, it appears that the serialized objects are corrupted during the mysql roundtrip (not entirely sure why?) and the quick solution is to base64 encode and decode the serialized objects as they pass in and out of mysql via updateOption and getOption. My fix is available via github if anyone is interested. It also fixes up some of the broken attempts to write out debug messages in the RSSCache.

    @peterhw, you're not alone. I'm encountering the same error as well. I'm going to hunt around the forums and see what I can find. If I turn up anything I'll post it here.
