Have Amazon changed their DRM?

I replaced my Kindle a few months ago, and have configured the Apprentice Alf plugin with the new serial number. I have just bought some books from Amazon for the first time since I got the new Kindle and downloaded them as AZW3, and then did what I normally do -- added them to my Calibre library and tried to convert them to EPUB so I can read them on my phone as well. The conversion failed with a "locked by DRM" error message.

I'm using Calibre 4.15 (pending a new version of the DeDRM plugin) and DeDRM 6.6.0. I download a DRMed book from elsewhere and I can convert it, and I've double-checked the Kindle serial number (cut & pasted it from Amazon). Can anyone tell me what I should do to fix this?

Post an import log at Apprentice Alf's blog. Detailed help with DRM removal isn't permitted at Mobileread.
