Looking through my windows (7 64bit) event logs it seems the crash always involves Qtgui4.dll but that's about all the info I can get out of that and doesn't help at all.

Would the lack of anything being in the calibre crash log tend to indicate it's a conflict somewhere with another program being at fault for causing the calibre crash? Or am I completely offbase?
That DLL is used by Calibre, but not under Calibres Logging control.
BTW That DLL cause most of my crashes, about 1 or 2 a month (XP SP3) in Calibre and Sigil.
Check your System Fonts, one might be damaged. You could also try setting a different font to be used by Calibre (for the GUI, not the book) in Preferences: Look and Feel (Main Interface)
