Bug Description

If you Edit metadata for an individual book and click "download cover", once covers have finished downloading calibre.exe uses significant CPU despite not doing anything (c. 6% on my i4910 laptop which equates to c. 50% of one processor of the eight-way).

As soon as this window is closed e.g. by clicking cancel, calibre.exe cpu drops to 0%.

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