Daily Devotional missing days
My church is doing a Bible-in-a-year program, and I would like to turn our notes into a daily devotional module for the Sword program. When I import the module, open BibleDesktop, and select my devotional, I briefly see all of the dates in the window, but then it updates and it skips two days for every day it shows. I see Jan 1, Jan 4, Jan 7, Jan 10, etc -- shows a day, skip two days. If I click on one of the days, it does show the devotional for that day.

My devotional doesn't work at all in GnomeSword.

More technical detail follows:

I used the Day By Day By Grace devotional as an example. I used the mod2imp tool to convert it to imp, so that I could be sure what it was supposed to look like.

To get started and familiarize myself with the process, I created a blank devotional biy.imp file that looks like:
$$$01.01
<p>Today's lesson is...</p>
$$$01.02
<p>Today's lesson is...</p>
$$$01.03
<p>Today's lesson is...</p>
-----
$$$12.30
<p>Today's lesson is...</p>
$$$12.31
<p>Today's lesson is...</p>


I also created a biy.conf file like this:
[BibleInAYear]
DataPath=./modules/lexdict/rawld/devotionals/biy/biy
ModDrv=RawCom
SourceType=OSIS
Lang=en
Version=0.5
Description=Ephesians Commentary (NCTM317) by Geoffrey Bingham
About=Contains: Ephesians
DistributionLicense=Still To Be Negotiated
Encoding=UTF-8


I ran imp2ld biy.imp and it created a biy.idx and a biy.dat. I copied those files to /home/billy/.sword/modules/lexdict/rawld/devotionals/biy/ and I put my biy.conf file in /home/billy/.sword/mods.d/
