Calibre crashing Mac OS-X

I have a Macbook Pro running OS-X 10.6. I have been using Calibre on this computer to fetch news and transfer content to my Kindle DXG for just under a month now. During this period, my OS has crashed about 5 times, requiring a complete shutdown and restart. And in each case, it seems related to a calibre-parallel process. I am not an expert in the OS and cannot understand the diagnostics that come up after the restart (in the report the OS asks if I want to send to Apple), but in each case I note the following line


Quote:
BSD process name corresponding to current thread: calibre-parallel
Is there a known issue? If not, is there something I can do to make sure the OS does not crash? I have been using Macs - both desktops and laptops - since 2005 and they might have crashed a total of 3 times before this. 5 crashes in the month after I started using Calibre could be a coincidence, but it seems unlikely to me.

The OS crashing tend to indicate something wrong with the system. Calibre is a user level process so should not be able to crash the system. It could however be triggering an underlying condition.

I bought a Bebook Neo last week, and OSX crashed once for me too. It happened after the device showed up in Calibre as soon as I connected it.

By the way: the last OSX crash I had on this machine was when I didn't insert RAM properly, about 2 years ago. This machine is very stable.
