Just tried it here - seems to work great. Are you sure you have the
latest SVN _trunk_ and also updated and reverted local changes? This
should get you set up:

svn revert -R .
svn up

Please try again. If not, you have to change the log() line in
src/gpodder/libpodcasts.py (line 166, the one that says "Cannot
instantiate episode") and add traceback=True as a keyword argument, i.e.

log('Cannot instantiate [...]', [...], sender=channel, traceback=True)

After that, the console output should give a better clue what's wrong.
