WordPress upgrade broke Syndication (RSS feeds)

IT seems that upgrading to WordPress 2.8 a few weeks ago broke my RSS feeds. It should be fixed now. *Please* let me know in the comments if you notice any problems.

For the more technically inclined, the problem occurs when using the adsense deluxe plugin to include google ads within posts. The javascript that displays the ads is included in the RSS feed when you select “For each article in a feed, show full text” under Settings –> Reading. You can see the problem by entering the address of your feed at http://feedvalidator.org. The problem can be solved by selecting “show summary” instead of “show full text” under Settings –> Reading. Removing the ads might also solve the problem, but I suspect other WordPress plugins, like the sharing bar you see under each of my posts, may have similar effects on the feed.
