Metadata local and library remote

Hi,

Just rebuilt my laptop and can't get this working again like it used to.

I had (I think):

metadata.db locally at c:\users\me\Calibre Library\metadata.db
Books remotely at Y:\media\books
CALIBRE_OVERRIDE_DATABASE_PATH set to c:\users\me\Calibre Library\metadata.db in Windows Env variables settings (no batch file)

I've copied my original metadata.db to the same location as it was before.

When I lauch calibre it sits on the splash screen, ticking away at about 5% CPU with steadily increasing memory, but doesn't load.

I've also got the following in global.py:
database_path = 'C:\\Users\\me/library1.db' (tried changing this, but Calibre keeps changing it back)
library_path = u'Y:\Media\Books'

What am I missing here???

Thanks

Gary
