Yes, I've got that as well. The problem seems to be related to a change
in the storage of of the folders and feeds. Whereas - in Linux at any
rate - in 3.10 the folders are in "~/.claws/RSSyl", in 3.11 they are
in  "~/.claws/RSSyl/My Feeds (RSSyl)". It seems that installing 3.11
results in a mixed system in which 3.11 doesn't work and, if you
backtrack to 3.10, that will also fail to function in that the feeds
will seem to be empty as well as not updating. 

I've got the system working once by, after backing up the old folder,
deleting the old-style folders. Due to having been switching systems
whilst testing openSUSE 13.2, I've managed to screw it up again so I'll
repeat the "cure" and see if it works this time!
