Calibre 0.7.4 crashing

Please I need help calibre 0.7.4 keeps crashing seems to happen a little bit after downloading metadata. My operating system is windows 7.

Get the following error:

"WARNING: There were errors: There were errors downloading social metadata

LibraryThing

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\ebooks\metadata\fetch.py", line 222, in fetch
Exception: Failed to lock"

And when running in debug mode I get this debug error just before a crash:

"QT Thread: Destroyed While thread is still running."

Also I had the Jason Cassidy LibraryThing plug-in. I have since removed it, thinking it was causing the crashing, but still had the above errors after I removed it.

Rest of debug window had the following upon crash:

"Starting up.....

link hasn't been detected
link hasn't been detected

Started up in 10.9110000134

I'm curious after removing the plugin did you restart calibre? For that matter after the crash and removing the plugin did you restart your computer?

You can work around the problem by going to

Preferences->Plugins->Metadata download plugins and disabling the LibraryThing plugin

Yes, I did restart the computer after removing the Jason Cassidy libarything plugin, but calibre still crashed.

But kovidgoyal suggestion of Preferences->Plugins->Metadata download plugins and disabling the kovidgoyal LibraryThing plugin seems to have worked. I was able to add metadata to several books without crashing.

Though I will have to really test it out tomorrow when I have more time. Though it seems the two libraryThing plugins seemed to work fine together until version o.7.4

Thanks for the help. Really appreciate it.

When you said LibraryThing plugin I thought you were referring to the plugin we all have. Even though you said Jason Cassidy It didn't occur to me that you were using a different plugin then the rest of us.

The Librarything plugin included in the Calibre install is relatively new (introduced? in the 0.7.3) which got changed to 0.7.4 within a day. I think this was the first time you had both plugins active.
