It's already been brought to my attention. It was a typo and has been corrected. It will work properly in the next release.

The error previously reported in this thread was fixed in 0.6.38. What version of calibre are you running? To respond "Are you sure you fixed it?" 37 versions later is unfathomable.

Submit a detailed bug report with the book attached and hopefully it will get looked at.

The error details show this has nothing to do with pdb output. This is a bug in hyphen handling that was introduced with .7.20 - It only affects books which have strings containing regex meta-characters which are also hyphenated on line breaks. This should primarily affect pdf files, but it could also affect other file types if preprocessing is enabled under structure detection. Only workaround is to downgrade to .7.19 or wait til .7.21 which will include a fix for this error.

Thanks for the quick response, guys.

I realized after I posted that the error was not the same as the one I was CC'ing on. And I've gone back to .7.19 now, which seems to work just fine for the time being.

Thanks again for your help.
