RSS Feed Category Permalinks Broken (4 posts)

    I am having some weird trouble on a WordPress site, regarding permalinks for category feeds.

    http://www.myblog.com/feed << this works fine

    http://www.myblog.com/category/categoryname << this works fine (pulls up a cat listing)

    http://www.myblog.com/category/categoryname/feed << this works inconsistently. On some categories, this pulls up the RSS feed in Firefox just fine. On other categories, this just causes a category archive page to load up.

    Anybody else have trouble with category feed permalinks? My gut tells me maybe this is a problem with my htaccess file? But all other permalinks seem to work just fine.

    If possible, I want to build these links WITHOUT having to use the category ID, I just want to use the slug. Is there another way to build a category feed link for a category, using just the slug?

    Thanks for any help! I would give access to my site but it is behind password protection. Thanks!

    p.s. Here is what my htaccess file says:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    I have the same problem.... and I think that it is due by the fact that I use category-x.php template.... in this case the feed doesn't work! if I delete this template the feed works perfecty...

    anybody have ideas?!
