Bug Description

Windows 8.0, calibre 2.18.

1. Open the ebook editor (with a book you don't care about!).
2. Drag and drop an image into the Live Preview pane. I have tested jpg and gif.
3. Preview displays the image as you might expect.
4. Try to open a .(x)html file (double click in the Files Browser Window).
5. Callibre-parallel.exe stops working.

Discovered by a dumb user testing to see if a drag and drop method could update an image in the body of a book!.

Cheers
Bruce
