 I upgraded to WP2.0.1 recently and now I can't get my old feed
 redirections to work.

 I copied the RewriteRule (RewriteRule ^index.xml(.*)? /blog/?feed=rss2
 [QSA]) from the Codex (http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Feeds) into my
 .htaccess file and that doesn't work - it sends me to the normal blog home
 page (index.php) instead.

 I tried using the suggested Feed Director plugin
 (http://boren.nu/archives/2005/03/29/feed-director-plugin/) and that
 doesn't work - same issue.

 I started messing around with the rewrite rules, and interestingly, they
 do seem to work when it's a non-feed file.  e.g. I put this rule into my
 .htaccess file

 RewriteRule ^gibberish$ /blog/index.php?category_name=management [L]

 and when I go to http://www.nehrlich.com/blog/gibberish, it sends me to
 the management category.

 I can go to the feed page directly -
 http://www.nehrlich.com/blog/index.php?feed=rss2  works fine - but
 redirecting to it appears to fail (I left the first RewriteRule in my
 .htaccess file, but http://www.nehrlich.com/blog/index.xml gets sent to
 the regular home page).

 I'm stumped - any ideas?  (submitted this first on the forums, but they
 pointed me to the Feed Director plugin, and that didn't work, so I'm
 trying a bug ticket)
