Bug Description

When attempting to download a book from Kobo through calibre, the signin succeeds and I can browse through and add books to my Library. But when I attempt to download a book, calibre first opens a dialog with caption "File is not a supported e-book format. Save to disk?" (I hope to have translated it correctly from my Dutch version) to save a file. When I change the file name from some cryptic codes to a more sensible name and click the Save button, a second, small calibre window appears:
Caption: "Download of e-book failed"
Text next to red cross: "Failed: downloading <filepath as entered>

Details, as copied to clipboard:


calibre, version 0.8.67 (win32, isfrozen: True)
