Ok, patch complete and added to the tracker incident above. Up to the Calibre gurus if/when this gets deployed of course but it's there for anyone else running from source.

shell script workaround to prevent ebook-viewer from modifying

Not sure how long these changes will take to filter into official deployed Calibre, but I still have the file-destructive version of ebook-viewer on my system. I made this easy workaround as an alternative to hacking the program:

Save this shell script as ebook-viewer somewhere on the path BEFORE /usr/bin/ebook-viewer:
Code:
#! /bin/bash

# The ebook-viewer utility of the Calibre project MODIFIES ANY EPUB 
# DOCUMENT THAT'S OPENED WITH IT. A bookmarks file is inserted into 
# the book. I know of no way at this time to prevent it from doing so 
# short of turning off all write bits on the files or hacking the
# program.

# This script is a crude solution, let ebook-viewer touch a junk copy 
# of the book in /tmp

tmpFile="/tmp/$(basename $1)"
cp $1 $tmpFile
/usr/bin/ebook-viewer $tmpFile
rm $tmpFile

This was an old thread - Calibre implemented changes many releases ago to address this issue (see change log for exactly when). In the Ebook viewer now go to Preferences and untick "Remember the current page when quitting".
