Openid problem with delegation

I have openid from myopenid.com . The open id url is thejeshgn.myopenid.com. I use delegation and use thejeshgn.com as the open id url. But something going wrong today. I am not able to login to few of my regular services like
http://www.dopplr.com/openid
http://ma.gnolia.com/signin
http://jyte.com/auth/login

But I am able to login to some other services like
livejournal.com
productwiki, and few self hosted wordpress blogs.

When I try to login to first set of sites. It does not even take me to myopenid.com login page. The error usually I get is timeout or open idserver does not exist. Which means the consumer is failing to read the delegation info. Is anybody facing the same problem?

Example error from Jyte ” Connection timed out attempting to contact your OpenID server”
There are more updates below:

Update1: Since morning it was not working. Strangely it started working now. Any idea?
Update2: Logged off and tried to login to Jyte again. Now I am not able to. Its very strange.
Update3: I got replies from all (jyte,ma.gnolia,claimid). It was problem with my header setting. One of the setting earlier as said by myopenid help section was
<meta http-equiv="X-XRDS-Location"
content="http://www.myopenid.com/xrds?username=youraccount.myopenid.com" />
Changed now to
<meta http-equiv="X-XRDS-Location" content="http://yoururl.myopenid.com/xrds">

Thanks to Brain from Jainrain for this help. Probaly they need to update that help section.
Update4 [Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 05:42:05 GMT]: No its something beyond that. As usual the new solution works with live journal and doesnot always work with other sites like Jyte or ma.gnolia.
Update5: Sometime in the after noon I was able to login. But now I am not able to. But I am still able to login to livejournal and wikitravel. Is it because they have a different type of implementation?
Updare6 [Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 10:26:05 GMT]: Is it the problem with my wordpress implementation? the same meta and link headers I have on techmag.biz ; from there I am able to login in. my wordpress could be the problem?
Updare8 [Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 11:00:05 GMT]: A little debugging tells me that its actually problem with the wordpress but the problem with my Theme. When I use the default theme it works well. But when I use SouthRiver theme. It does not work. So I will continue taking that as my starting point.

Updare7[Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 13:00:05 GMT]:I did some debugging. Now I am almost confirmed that SouthRiver theme is responsible for it. But I love this theme. I am keeping it. I need to run this theme locally on my laptop to see what exactly is wrong

    So what was the root of the problem? Found out?

    I have another new issue altogether. I am able to comment on sites using my open id. However, instead of displaying my name, it shows up as ‘blog’ if i enter my open id url as “http://mohanbn.com/blog”. Similarly, it displays as ‘mohanbn.com’ if the open id url is entered as http://mohanbn.com.

    Any idea on how to over come this and to display my name as just ‘Mohan’ instead of ‘blog’ or ‘mohanbn.com’?
