RSS feeds don't work right when rendered

This is a weird one.

I have two sites: a dynamic (& password-protected) Manila-powered news site 
( and a statically rendered Apache site 

If you go to, you'll notice that the news is in the center 
column, with the orange RSS button at the top. If you subscribe to that RSS 
feed, or if you just view the RSS feed iself, you'll see that all the posts 
link back to! Needless to say, this doesn't work for my 
readers, since dev is password-protected.

It was my understanding that rendering would not do this, that RSS posts & 
feeds, along with everything else, would adopt the new, statically rendered 

How do I fix my RSS feed so that links in it point to 
instead of Is this a Manila bug? 

I thought of running a cron job every minute that would do a find & replace 
for & change it to, but that seems just 
incredibly hackish.
