Unhappy Everything OK until I updated to 0.6.29

I've been happily using Calibre to manage my ebook collection until this week I updated to version 0.6.29... not I ca'nt add books. When I run calibre from a command prompt with

calibre-debug -g

The following message starts popping up in the terminal... the same when I try to add books, when Calibre freezes

Exception KeyError: ('Exception KeyError: ('_file_file',) in <bound method Persi
stentTemporaryFile.__del__ of <calibre.ptempfile.PersistentTemporaryFile object
at 0x03ED4630>> ignored

The messages are similar, only the 0x... address changes...

What could be the problem?

I did that, several times. Even tried with previous versions, and deleting the program files/calibre2 folder. Do I have so delete a registry key or some other folder so I can begin with a clean slate?

Thanks for answering gain, Kovid-san. No, it's always been calibre2.

Incidentally, the message calibre shows when I try to add ANY book, even books I've added before, is:

ERROR: Adding failed: The add books process seems to have hung. Try restarting calibre and adding the books in smaller increments, until you find the problem book.

... No matter which I add.

There's something really weird on your machine. I have no idea what, though. Do you have a an alternate machine to try?

If you want to completely clean out calibre, you should delete the config files as well (you can see thyem by going to Preferences->Advanced)

Cool SOLVED!

Thanks for the kind responses. I solved the issue after much fretting, cursing and fumbling... The problem was, apparently, the Java version I had. Looks like it was not new enough or there was something wrong about it, but after uninstalling it and manually downloading the new version, everything is in order.
