Calibre crashes Xserver on startup
I'm using Calibre with Kubuntu for some time now. But since some weeks Calibre crashes on startup and I'm back at the login screen. I think the Xserver is somehow affected. I do not know if calibre or Xserver is the reason. Other programs like firefox or okular etc. are working fine.
I started Calibre from the Konsole with script to get some clues but since I'm not a programmer it has not much meaning for me.
In the Codebox below you find the logged text.
Currently I'm using Kubuntu 12.10, I tried different desktops like Gnome and LXDE to no avail so it is probably on a deeper level.
If need to please point me to a useful crash report - I will happily post it here.
It would be great if somebody could provide some help or any ideas using VirtualBox for Calibre is annoying.

calibre contains no code that talks to the x server directly. It uses Qt. The bug if there is one is somewhere between those two. That Xorg log appears to show the server crashing while listing fonts on your system. Look for newly added font files and remove them. Other than that, you're on your own.

Working again after the last X-Server update yesterday.
That did work only until the next reboot.
But I found another solution here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1864672&page=2 And it works since then.
This is a problem with the nvidia installation and any Qt-Software. There is a wrong parameter set in the xorg.conf who is apparently also set automatically if there is no xorg.conf - as it was in my case.
just commenting out the following lines and restarting solved the problem:
Section "Files" FontPath "unix/:7100" EndSection
