Unhappy Calibre crashes Xserver on startup


I'm using Calibre with Kubuntu for some time now. But since some weeks Calibre crashes on startup and I'm back at the login screen. I think the Xserver is somehow affected. I do not know if calibre or Xserver is the reason. Other programs like firefox or okular etc. are working fine.
I started Calibre from the Konsole with script to get some clues but since I'm not a programmer it has not much meaning for me.
In the Codebox below you find the logged text.
Currently I'm using Kubuntu 12.10, I tried different desktops like Gnome and LXDE to no avail so it is probably on a deeper level.
If need to please point me to a useful crash report - I will happily post it here.

It would be great if somebody could provide some help or any ideas using VirtualBox for Calibre is annoying.

Also a part of Xorg.log.old that may hold some clues:
