Just in case that rss2 foxes you, I’d changed a line (#181 in makepdf.php) to test something on Martin’s suggestion. Have just switched it back and I get:

127.0.0.1 – – [24/Nov/2010:10:26:07 +0000] “GET /?feed=make-pdf-newspaper HTTP/1.1” 200 446 “http://aaaaa.bbb?feed=make-pdf-newspaper” “SimplePie/1.3-dev (Feed Parser; http://simplepie.org; Allow like Gecko) Build/20101123102807″

Thanks
