When using Grr, if you create a "Category" and place feeds under said category from the same domain, it can go horribly wrong. In my setup, I have a bunch of YouTube channel feeds under a category called "Videos", and under "Videos" is a few other sub-categories. The first sub-category called "Animation" has a channel called "Aap". Since Aap is the first feed of this sub category, just about every other feed under the mega-category of "Videos" gets, er, infected by the "Aap" feed. Essentially, it renames every other feed to "Aap", and shoves in the 15 RSS articles from "Aap" into the other feeds. Grr (and I've checked the database.plist) still has the right URL for the feed assigned, and crawls it, but now it's been infused with the first feed of that category. I've tried renaming the feeds and just try to live with the fact that Aap articles appear in other feeds, but now it's even grabbing another feed and causing havoc to the feeds in the sub-categories. And it seems to just rename them anyway. It's worth nothing it doesn't do this to all feeds in Grr, just the feeds/sub-categories under the "Videos" category.

I tried this with another site where I had feeds from the same domain. Created a sub-category under the category where that site's feeds were, and bam, like clockwork same exact thing with the first feed "infecting" the feed in the sub-category.

I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like, obviously there should be a ton of unique channels listed, not "Aap" and "JackStauber". The greyed articles are the ones from the Aap feed.

Hopefully this can be fixed, I use RSS feeds for all my news and updates because I personally detest using a web browser for all this stuff and it's easier to keep track of things. Thanks in advance.
