Conversion Failed

Hi guys, my apologies if I am posting this in the wrong area, or if I don't give enough information.

I've never had a problem with Calibre before and mainly use it to convert word docs to EPUB to read on my iPad (first saving the doc as rtf).

Tonight however I have come across Conversion Failed on 4 new documents.

This is the error I receive (well at least for 1 of the files) and I have changed none of the default settings:

This does not answer your 'error' question, but this chapter detection pattern looks strange to me.
Code:
((chapter|book|section|part)\\s+)|((prolog|pr ologue|epilogue)(\\s+|$))', 'i')) or @class = 'chapter']",

Save your rtf as html in word and then convert the html, you will be fine.
