RTF conversion woes

Is anyone else having incredibly long conversion times when converting certain books from any source format to RTF? Some books convert in under 15 seconds and then some take over an hour.

It doesn't matter what the format for the source book is, converting it to any ebook other format, and then trying to convert it to RTF results in the same over an hour conversion time.

I can provide a source file by pm if anyone wants to try for themselves.

The latest version that does not have this issue is 3.46.0, anything above this has the same issue.

Open a bug report and attach the book in question. Although i strongly recommend converting to docx rather than rtf, for much better results.

For what little it may be worth, on my Windows 10 system, the ebook converted from epub to rtf in 9 min, 10 sec with calibre x64 4.70.
