I downloaded 0.6.37 from koji and the problem persists.
What version of sip do you have installed? Is it in the fedora repositories?
I upgraded sip after the initial failure to start calibre, but without success. I then rebuilt the calibre rpm and was able to get a functional install of calibre.
Calibre clearly depends on what version of sip it was compiled against and changing this can break calibre.

I believe that this bug was caused by a qt version >=4.6 . As the newer versions of all the packages that use qt 4.6 including pyqt4 and sip are now in fedora 12, I've updated the calibre package.
qt 4.6 was also a requirement for any calibre >= 0.6.38.
It would be great if you could test this bug and give some feedback in bodhi at updates.fedoraproject.org
