ahh this is where  we differ I use @rel="default-slice" like this 
example from my home page :

    <link rel="default-slice" type="application/x-hatom"

 From what I can tell the web slice has to be on the *same page*  for 
you to be able to subscribe to it.

I didn't do much to implement web slices all I did was add a "hslice" to 
my "hentry", added an ID and linked to It using the auto discovery link 
I described above.

If you have an example....? then I will be more than happy to take a look ;)
