Unhappy calibre 0.6.17 (linux) segfaults when trying to upload books

Just upgraded to calibre 0.6.17 on Linux (Mandriva 2009.1) using the binary installer method.

Now I can't upload a single book (Sony PRS-505), it immediately segfaults with:
/usr/bin/calibre: line 10: 11603 Segmentation fault $loader "$@"

I've had no problems uploading books with 0.6.16 (or other previous versions).

Any ideas? Is there an easy way to downgrade to 0.6.16 in the meanwhile?

Unhappy calibre 0.6.18 still segfaults when uploading books

Just upgraded to 0.6.18.

Same error during installation as already mentioned:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/linux.py", line 176, in setup_completion
ImportError: cannot import name titles

But calibre still crashes whenever I try to upload a book:
$ calibre
link hasn't been detected!
link hasn't been detected!
/usr/bin/calibre: line 11: 10481 Segmentation fault $loader "$@"
Part of the uploaded file is actually on the reader, it seems to crash halfway through the uploading process.

Again, never had problems uploading with any version prior to 0.6.17.

the segfault is caused by some incompatible library you'll have to enable core dumps and get a backtrace to debug further.

The installation error can be ignored.

I created the core dump, it crashes in /lib/libuuid.so.1:

$gdb /opt/calibre/loader core.4907
GNU gdb 6.8-6mdv2009.1 (Mandriva Linux release 2009.1)

gen_uuid.c is part of /lib/libuuid.so.1, which is part of libext2fs2

Any idea what changed in calibre between 0.6.16 and 0.6.17 that might cause this?

The bundled python was upgraded. You have a 32bit or a 64bit machine?
