Podcast feed stopped working in the last beta or two #91

Hi there,
I had a feed for our podcast which I set up with v 2.0.1, since then I've accepted Joomla's automatic upgrade through to 2.1 beta 1 and now beta 2. Everything seems to work fine (thanks!) with the one exception that I noticed my feed url (kickstartershq.com/index.php?option=com_podcastmanager&format=raw&feedname=1) now seems to go through to a 404 page. It was working fine before (although there's been a couple of small Joomla point releases since then, too). The URL is rewritten to:

which is a bit odd, given that ACEsef is set not to rewrite podcast manager URL's (although maybe this is just Joomla's url rewriting...)

Any ideas?

I don't think this is an issue with my code, but something in the routing somewhere. It's 404'ing because the slash between index.php and component is getting stripped out, for reasons I couldn't begin to troubleshoot (me and the routing system don't get along). I tried the raw, non-SEF URL also and it got re-written to your broken URL. Here's my output from my attempted connection using cURL:

curl -v --url "http://kickstartershq.com/index.php?option=com_podcastmanager&view=feed&format=raw&feedname=1"
