I uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times now, and each time made sure that *everything* was gone from my previous install. The program is still either giving me a blank rtf or txt output or, on occasion, giving me a corrupt rtf output. Is there anything else that I can try to fix this problem?

EDIT: I am also getting much more frequent errors that look like this:
Code:
ERROR: Could not open ebook: unpack requires a string argument of length 2

Traceback (most recent call last):
