Kindle Fire and Calibre problem
Anybody else seeing problems with ebooks loaded from Calibre?
Recently I've been noticing that sometimes books loaded through Calibre *seem* to crash the ebook reader. File is loaded, a page is displayed and then the screen goes blank and the Fire homepage is displayed. Same file manually copied to the Documents directory works as expected.
I'm wondering if it might be related to the unmounting strangeness I'm seeing also. When I "eject device" from Calibre, the Fire still sees itself as mounted and I need to unmount from the Fire to get back to the homepage.
Oh.. Running Ubuntu 10.04.3 and Calibre 0.8.29.

I have seen this, usually after the Fire has been rebooted. I think what is happening is that the device is re-cataloging the ebooks. If you wait a minute or two the ebook opens as expected.
