Mixing RSS and geo data a no-no?

Having played a bit with Piggy Bank, I decided to hack geo: data into my
RSS in order to try to get the automatic mapping feature to work; and
all that happened was that Piggy Bank stopped working for my pages

Example, two websites, both running very similar versions of my PRES

This works, at least with Piggy Bank in my Firefox; I get the RDF 'coin'
icon in the lower right, and when I click on it, Piggy Bank analyses
the RSS and gives me a useful display.

This is the same software except with geographic data hacked in; again I
get the RDF 'coin' icon, but when I click on it I get 'No typed data

Can anyone explain what I'm doing wrong? Are you just not allowed to add
geo data to RSS like that? Any suggestions for how I could prepare
suitable geo data for Piggy Bank and similar systems?
