Latest Calibre and Fedora 12 Issue

Hi, first post here . I am running Fedora 12 64 bit, fully updated. I searched but found nothing like this issue I am dealing with.
I use calibre to access my Sony PRS-600 Touch, which I feed with legal documents in .pdf format for use in court. Due to a bug in calibre that prevented it from starting under Fedora, I installed the latest experimental version available for Fedora (0.6.42). Problem solved. Now, the issue is that, whenever I select a book or a document in calibre's main window, the hard disk starts spinning without pause for around a minute, bringing the whole computer almost to a halt for that long. Even if I close calibre, my computer remains sluggish and showing delays that force me to reboot. I once started calibre from the console and got this output:
Code:
[Francisco@Hogar Desktop]$ calibre

The first two lines (link hasn't been detected!) were the only ones showing up when using calibre. The rest appeared after closing the program.
Every other function in calibre seems ok, including the settings window. Other symptoms I got are a slower startup time and in adding new books. If further info is needed, just let me know. Any hint will be appreciated .
