Bug Description

Calibre 3.40.1 64-bit (Windows 10 64-bit)

Adding books configured as follows:

- Automatically convert added books to the current output format: checked
- Auto-merge added books if they already exist: Overwrite existing duplicate formats

When adding a book that already exists in the library

Expected behaviour: overwrite the existing imported format, then auto-convert to the current output format.

Actual behaviour: overwrite the existing imported format, but not perform the conversion.

Tested importing epub, azw3 and html.

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

The fix in 3.41.1 is incomplete. After the fix merged books are auto-converted if at least one of the books added is new. However, if all the books already exist in the Calibre library then none of the added books are auto-converted.
