Problem converting mobipocket books

I just bought a couple of drm'd mobipocket books from Fictonwise (As I've done a lot in the past). I removed the drm in ways we aren't supposed to talk about and fed the resultant files into Calibre for conversion to lrf. Instead of getting lrf files as I usually do I got this error log instead.

This is with version 0.4.133 of Calibre although initially I was getting the same problem with an earlier version. Is there anything I can do to get this converted?

Ah. Ignore my feeble ramblings. No problem at all with the wonderful Calibre. Problem solved by means I can't talk about

It's a shame that we can't talk about this stuff really. Especially when it's being used with legally purchased books.

Ah well. Time to donate to Kovid since it's payday

Problems converting Mobipocket

I have the same problem after removing the drm from my legally purchased ebook. I tried using Calibre to convert them to epub and got an error message. I don't know how to go around to fixing this. Could you give me a hint as to how to go about correcting this problem.

Thanks

I'm having similar problems myself converting a book into mobi (To refresh the metadata).
