Unhappy New Calibre install won't start/seg faults on Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit

I just tried to install Calibre for the first time today and it will not run. I get the setup screens and then nothing.

I looked through the forums but didn't find anyone with the same output when running calibre-debug -g
Code:
~$ calibre-debug -g

** (<unknown>:3634): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed

Segmentation fault


I tried removing and reinstalling, removing all the ~/.calibre and .config/calibre files and nothing changed.

It just updated recently:

Code:
$ uname -a
Linux singularitarian 2.6.31-19-generic #56-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 28 02:39:34 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I installed it using apt-get, also tried with aptitude.

uninstall it and try the binary version from the calibre website. If you want to stick with the version from aptitude, I can't really help as I don't maintain it.
