Frozen results from RSS widget (wp-includes/rss.php)

WP 2.2 standard RSS widget (wp-includes/rss.php) won't update results when given the following URL: http://www.medworm.com/rss/userss.php?qu=PEDIATRICS&news=on .
You can reproduce by going to admin panel->presentation->widgets, adding a RSS widget to the side panel, and inputting the above given URL into the widget; leave title empty. Save; go to site. The widget does display a list of articles from that URL. But the list won't update on the next day or even next week.
