I tried resetting the environment but there's no difference. However, I think the problem might be not be with Elementary's environment but instead with Elementary Tweaks - a 3rd party addition to the settings. Tweaks may very well have bunged up the works. Which is perhaps why Calibre re-emerged when I used Tweaks to change the GTK Theme from Elementary to Pop Dark.

I would disable Tweaks but Elementary OS without Tweaks is nearly unusable. I'll just have to get used to the Pop Dark theme. Probably better for my eyes anyway.

Thanks for the help. And thanks for Calibre.
