File/Folder Dialog errors

Hi all, Have installed the 64 bit calibre on win 7(64 bit) and in general, it's great, however ANY dialog asking you to choose a folder or file causes calibre to go completely unresponsive.

Examples include "save to disk", and "add book". These dialogs appear with just title bar at the top, and a "Select folder/File" edit box and button, and a cancel button. The rest of the dialog (large amount of space) is completely blank. Although you can type in the dialog, pressing any of the buttons (or even closing the dialog) has no effect.

The actual functions all work (i.e you can add books by "dragging" onto Calibre), but anything involving a dialog just causes it to melt.

Any ideas?

discard the download MSI file
Uninstall Calibre (the library should be fine)
Get a fresh download and try again
1.5 W7-64 works here

Thanks for the reply,

Did not help

No difference to either the save or open dialogs, now version 1.5.0

After killing the unresponsive calibre I get this information:

You used up my ideas.
W7-64 works for me.
So far I have used
o (open book folder)
t (tweak book)
Send to device
delefe from device

Nothing unusual happens
