Dictionary Problem

I apologize if I'm putting this in the wrong place. Feel free to just move it or let me know where it should go and I can repost it.

I've often used the "Lookup in Dictionary" option in Calibre. Today for some reason I get the following error:

AttributeError.'unicode' object has no attribute 'scheme'

I tried changing the dictionary to no avail. I tried then eliminating the dictionary altogether but that didn't work so I've put it back the way it was.

Once this happens during a reading session I get another error whenever I move the cursor in the reader window:

AttributeError.'QContextMenuEvent' object has no attribute 'source'

I can avoid this error by
  1. simply not moving the cursor;
  2. moving the cursor out of the reader window and then hitting Enter to clear the message;
  3. doing # 2 above and then closing and reopening the reader at which point all is well as long as I don't try to use the dictionary again.
To be clear, it's not that I'm doing anything with the cursor in the reader window to cause the error other than just moving it (i.e. the mouse/touch pad). It's the movement iself that's the culprit.

My technical skills are not the best (I considered it a victory merely figuring out how to use the attributes in this forum! ), so any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
