Magnet URLs (like for BitTorrent) from showRSS crash the embedded Safari browser, although they don't crash real Safari. (Not sure if it's just showRSS specific or not.)  If I double tap the article or click on the browser icon, the whole app crashes and I get dropped out to springboard.

On a related note, it'd be great if there was a way to copy just the URL of the current feed item; the existing Copy functionality returns both the name and URL.

Semi-related question: What are you doing with magnet links on an iPad? I've been looking long and hard at a solution to torrent from an iPad, but I haven't found anything satisfactory, and am thus iPad-less.
