Error with QDoubleSpinBox

Most likely this is user error as I am presently screwing around with a sample database, trying to establish a viable database, layout, etc.

Anyway, I created a custom column and marked it as a series and subgrouped. Apparently this presented calibre with a problem. Trying to edit metadata, I got the following:


IN THE BOOK LIST
calibre, version 0.9.14
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>TypeError</b>:QDoubleSpinBox.setValue(float): argument 1 has unexpected type 'unicode'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\actions\edit_metadata.py", line 208, in edit_metadata
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\actions\edit_metadata.py", line 228, in do_edit_metadata
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\metadata\single.py", line 1008, in edit_metadata
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\metadata\single.py", line 501, in start

File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\metadata\single.py", line 288, in __call__
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\custom_column_widgets.py", line 389, in initialize
TypeError: QDoubleSpinBox.setValue(float): argument 1 has unexpected type 'unicode'

The error above would not allow me to enter the Edit Metadata screen for the problem book.


EDIT METADATA (SINGLE) FOR ANOTHER BOOK & PREV/NEXT TO TARGET BOOK
calibre, version 0.9.14
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>TypeError</b>:QDoubleSpinBox.setValue(float): argument 1 has unexpected type 'unicode'

TypeError: QDoubleSpinBox.setValue(float): argument 1 has unexpected type 'unicode'

The error above would allow me to get into the Edit Metadata screen for the problem book.


Once I altered the data in that custom field to remove the subgroup (ex: GROUP.SUBGROUP changed to GROUP) and saved it, calibre stopped throwing the error message for that book. Checking several books without a subgrouping in that custom column were fine. I could edit metadata without incident.

I noticed this error starting in 9.11 (I think) but I updated to the current version in case this was a known and corrected problem. On WinXP Pro SP3.

I know this should probably be in the bug tracker, but I'm not exactly sure what to call this. Assuming it's a bug and not user error.
