Validating my RSS feeds causes old posts to reappear

Today some of my old posts reappeared as new posts in some RSS readers. This is
because I have been validating my RSS feeds. While my blog has been valid XHTML
for quite some time, I found yesterday that the RSS feed was not valid XML and therefore
not valid RSS 2.0. I corrected the errors and have now made the feed a valid RSS feed.
Because of these corrections the RSS aggregators regard the posts as different though
I took care to ensure that the time stamp of the original post remains unchanged
