Silly me...

Just spent more than half an hour trying to figure out why, oh, why Syndirella doesn't load correctly feeds imported from OPML files. I almost decided to implement all the serialization code manually, but stopped because I didn't really want to figure out how to serialize arrays containing objects of different types.

As usual, the problem turned out to be completely trivial. When importing the OPML file, I changed to a different directory, and syndirella.dat got saved in that directory. Obviously, when Syndirella was next started, it loaded its settings from the current directory.

So, from now on, Syndirella will store its data file in a fixed location under the user's profile directory, and hopefully such problems will never arise. :-)
