While going through litmus test case # 2191, I noticed that a feed subscription will not refresh after 5 minutes or 7 minutes, or whatever. I have it setup to auto refresh but it won't check for new entries. I think I have seen a bug like this, but I could not find it.

STR:
1. Add an rss feed
2. In the account settings make sure you have it so that it checks for new articles every X minutes, say 10.

Expected: Feed should check for new articles and it should have new entries after 10 minutes, for example if you subscribe to http://www.livejournal.com/stats/latest-rss.bml

Actual: No auto refresh.
