Error with single feed URL unless you add a trailing semi-colon

Apr 24, 2012 at 7:08 PM

I get the following error with some feeds (that don't end in .xml)  

For example, the URL  "http://feeds.nytimes.com/nyt/rss/HomePage" will throw the following

There was an exception reading the RSS Feed.

Unable to cast object of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.CachedXmlDocument' to type 'Rss.RssFeedCollection'.

Please Contact Your Administrator

If I make that "http://feeds.nytimes.com/nyt/rss/HomePage;" I don't get the error.  I don't get the error with feeds that have the xml name in the URL (e.g. "http://www.engadget.com/rss.xml")
