Bug Description

1) Assume we have a book we wish to convert from filetype A to filetype B.
2) The job would then be created and be queued for completion.
3) Meanwhile, the impatient user ;) is waiting on the book's "View specific formats" window (Alt-V).
4) When the job completes, the book's "View specific formats" page is not automatically updated.
5) To select the preferred file format, the user would then need to exit the window and reopen the book's "View Specific formats" window.

The change of behaviour to an auto-updating "View Specific Formats" window appears to be more inline to user expectations.

Thanks!

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
