Is this a Goggle bug?

There seems to be a large number of blogs [blogsearch.google.com] where Google thinks the title is the XML declaration (including my own!).

My feed checks out ok in a validator and so do a random sample of the others I checked.

Is this a Google bug, a validator bug or something else do you think?

Interesting... Thing is it is not just the usual XML namespace declaration on the
html
as the title is:

<[b]div[/b] xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

At a glance I can't see any particular common problem with the pages themselves, so it may be where Google is getting its information from. A lot of the feeds appear to be my.opera.com blogs, so there may be a connection there.
