Exclamation EPub > RTF conversion fails

I'm trying to convert a fanfiction story (downloaded with the FanFiction Downloader plugin) from EPub format to RTF. It is not working.

Important facts:

1.) This conversion has worked just fine on other fanfics that were downloaded the same way.

2.) I can convert this story from Epub to either PDF or Mobi format just fine.

3.) A few other fanfics have had the same problem, but most of the ones I've tried work fine.

Any ideas?

BTW, here's a ZIP file with the contents of the Debug directory after trying the Epub > RTF conversion with debug enabled:

Can you convert the Mobi to RTF?

Just tried it, and nope, still fails. Looks like the same error message, but I just skimmed it.

Hmmm, not sure. Does it open OK in Calibre's viewer? What about opening it in Sigil and re-saving it then converting with Calibre? Hopefully a dev will come along and have some ideas.

Yep, both the Epub and Mobi work fine in Calibre's viewer.

[EDIT]
Okay, I found a way around the problem. It's still an issue that should be fixed, though.

So, it's just waiting on that patch to be included in a future update. Cool.
