I've tried adding the feed and after a bit of debugging I found that the
<pubDate> field of the channel has a wrong format. I've changed the code
accordingly so that the channel's pubDate is ignored (it's not essential
for gPodder's function, anyway).

Until the next release is out (which will be in about a month), you can
use the SVN version of gPodder which already has this fixed: 


Thanks for your report :) Maybe you can also post the 4 other URLs that
are not working? (Or maybe they didn't work because of the same bug and
now work)
