ePub slowdown then lockup

I have a strange problem with one ePub book. It was originally html and I converted it to ePub using Calibre. It's about 160 pages - 12 chapters.

As I was reading it and got to about chapter 11, I noticed it was taking longer and longer to change pages, particularly at chapter boundaries. Then it eventually lockup up. I couldn't change page, and couldn't exit the book, not even bring up the menu.

So I reset the PP and opened the book again. It opened, but at Chapter 6, so I used the catalog/chapter menu to go to the last chapter. The first page of the chapter opened, then it froze again.

I reset it, then went and read a different book. It was fine on this other book. I have read about 10 other books since buying my PP, and the battery is full (before anyone suggests that ) so I think hardware problems are unlikely.

Anyone else experienced anything like this? I have the latest firmware from late last year. This is the worst possible way to fail, as it prevented me finishing a book that I had been avidly consuming. I guess I will have to try to finish it using Calibre on my computer.
