Yes, it is. And it turns out that I am the very strange man who caused it.

In addition to my Debian 8 install, I've been testing out the latest Linux Mint and MX-Linux versions. I routinely symlink my data partitions into my /home/silverbear directories so I have access to all my data no matter what distro I'm running.

APPARENTLY I got the not-so-bright idea to do the same with my install of calibre 2.46 as a time-saving experiment. . .
. . . and then forgot I'd done it.

Lesson: do not modify the OS late at night when you have an insomnia attack!

I'm sorry for wasting your time, gentlemen. Symlink has been rm'd and calibre 2.48 is nicely installed in /opt with no problems.
