Problems retrieving Metadata

For the last few days I have had problems trying to download metadata.

Sometimes I get a hit with the cover but am not getting any comments being retrieved.

I am using:

Windows Vista
Calibre 0.7.57 + Version 0.8

I have a number of plugins installed including:-

Kindle Collections
Good Reads Metadata
Manage Series
Synch Books
Internet Lookup
Get Books
Quality Check
Plugin Updater

All my plugins are their current version.

When I do a "Get Metadata" Ctrl+D I get a generic failure message:-

calibre, version 0.7.57
Download complete: <p>Finished downloading metadata for <b>1 book(s)</b>. Proceed with updating the metadata in your library?<p>Could not download metadata and/or covers for 1 of the books. Click "Show details" to see which books.

The Long Quiche Goodbye (Failed metadata)



If I Edit Metadata Individually and open the item and select Get Metadata I get a much more complex error message:-

calibre, version 0.7.57
ERROR: Download failed: Failed to download metadata. Click Show Details to see details

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\metadata\single_download.py" , line 366, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\ebooks\metadata\sources\identify. py", line 415, in identify
File "site-packages\calibre\ebooks\metadata\book\base.py", line 122, in __getattribute__
AttributeError: Metadata object has no attribute named: 'plugin'


I can then view the log which prints out a very long message as below:-

Review
"The charm of the story is greatly enhanced by a very rich cast of characters."
--Booklist A.L.A. Magazine
"Not since Agatha Christie has a female author created an amateur sleuth with a penchant for details."
--Mark Sadler, Suspense Magazine
"_The Long Quiche Goodbye_ marks the start of a successful, long-running series. Aames' characters are enjoyable, and Charlotte stands out from other amateur sleuths."

So basically I unticked the button that said "Convert all downloaded comments to plain text" and the problem was fixed.

Thanks for your help, but surely that must be a bug?????

Yes, and it has already been reported, twice, and fixed for the next release.
