sometimes, it will post the same news item twice, I started to realize that each one had something in common.
when putting the topic into the database, you need to convert the string to HTMLEntity (or not reverse convert, I didn't look at all your code). If you don't, topic_already_exists will return false cause it's taking the string directly from the feed, and XML always has it translated.
I fixed it on our forums already by simply htmlentities() it before it gets inserted into the db
Does anyone have more specific details on this 'fix'?
I see the same message coming from different news feeds often.
