Hi Drew

That was fast help. Thanks.

To be exact, the same message also occurs with some other operations,
for example org-mobile-push. So I don't think it's an error connected to
newsticker.el. Something more general must be wrong. And I can't find
it. Is there really a symbol called "..."? Can it be an encoding
problem?

Below is a debug output of org-mobile-push.

Thanks,

Sven
