Could you send the content of one of the feeds you tried? (to me only  
if its content should not be public). I know that the direct input  
interface of the feed validator is somewhat more fragile than the one  
for online resources, but I tried with a couple of them and  
validation was performed without problem.

Can you send the trace, and context? I just tried the soap output  
that the ruby library should be using, and as far as I can tell it is  
functional.

Correct. Will fix that, thank you.
