Bug Description

A user in #calibre on FreeNode encountered an error trying to download an ebook from Project Gutenberg. In attempting to reproduce it, I encountered a different problem. (The user has been encouraged to file their own bug report.)

Calibre 2.2, OS X.

Steps to reproduce:

Get books > Stores > Project Gutenberg

selected random, then first book (in this case, H. G. Wells, _The History of Mr. Polly_

select EPUB (no images)

Dialog appears: "File is not a supported ebook type. Save to disk?"

saved to Downloads folder

Error dialog appears:

File is not present in Downloads folder when the error dialog is shown.

Additional information: On third attempt to reproduce (having had to close the store dialog for the error dialog to allow copying), there was no response from the GUI on attempting to reopen the store dialog.

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