calligraauthor is not running until it is called by emacs calling it.

Unfortunately not. calligraauthor opens very easily with no problems on
its own, and it also opens 'boudiccas.crontab' with zero problems once
calligraauthor is launched on its own.

I suspect that there is something hard-wired into the new version of
emacs which forces emacs to open up some links in calligraauthor,
instead of emacs itself, as it used to do with emacs-25.1.

When I compiled this version of emacs I used these commands in this
order -

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
sudo make install
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Debian 9.0, fluxbox 1.3.5-2, emacs 25.3.1, org-mode 9.1
