the next subscription (is this correct?). Thus, if I cancel one (per issue 1), 
then I don't even see updates for the later subscriptions. This is also a 
problem when I start a clean install and import my OPML list. pRSSReader wants 
to download all of my enclosures (no matter what I tell it to do in settings 
for new items only), so there is a lot of manual work to cancel and 
individually tag just the new ones I want. If I just leave all the data in 
place for upgrades of pRSSReader, this is a one time event.  For item 3), I'd 
like to see an enclosure queue of some sort where all subscriptions are scanned 
first on a full update, enclosures are queued up, and then enclosure download 
only begins after all subscriptions have been updated.  BTW, this is using the 
latest beta build (haven't installed the latest almost RC update from this week 
yet).  My 2 cents.Thanks,Skov

1) Fixed, thanks for reporting
2) Have no idea, where the problem is (for now)
3) Manageable download queue is planned feature (for 1.4.0)

For the future reports, please, describe problems/bugs in single emails
(i.e. one bug per one email - with descriptive subject of course), it
makes bug fixing easier for me.
