I have configured aKregator to update feeds every 30 minutes and then set some feeds using "custom update interval" to never update.
When I star aKregator it updates all feeds, even these set to "never".
Do you have "Fetch all feeds on startup" on the General tab of the config dialog enabled?
I do, but IMHO it would be logical for "custom update interval" to override this setting.
I was just about to report the same bug. I think Akregator shouldn’t update feeds on start-up, if the custom update interval is set to never, as you sometimes want to keep a feed in the feed list without updating it and you still want to update all your other feeds on start-up.

I can confirm this bug for Akregator 1.6.2 of KDE 4.4.2 from Kubuntu 10.04.
It's pretty annoying as I have a feed which's source recently got login protected. Although I cannot get new messages I still want to keep the old ones. So I have to cancel a login request each time I start Akregator, now.
A "disable fetching completely" in the feed settings would be really nice, as suggested by the comments of the duplicated bug report #221901.
Confirmed in KDE 4.9.4 on Arch Linux.

This bug is still present in KDE SC 4.11.4.
Unfortunately I can't code C++, but I have a spare laptop where I can try new versions or patches if someone has any idea for a fix.
This bug has only been reported for versions before 4.14, which have been unsupported for at least two years now. Can anyone tell if this bug still present?
If noone confirms this bug for a Framework-based version of akregator (version 5.0 or later, as part of KDE Applications 15.08 or later), it gets closed in about three months.
Unfortunately, this bug is still present on akregator 5.3.0 (applications 16.08.2) if you have Check feeds on startup enabled.
Feeds also get updated if you use Ctr+L to update all the feeds, even the feeds configured to never update.
