Having sorted out that problem, I am still left with the bug that I 
reported in the earlier version.  To recap, BibleTime works just fine 
with a couple of modules installed in my home directory, but when I use 
sword.conf to add the path to a sword directory on a storage drive 
containing upwards of 140 modules, I get a spasmodic crash on startup.

I've now managed to get this crash under gdb and the backtrace is as 

This GDB was configured as "i686-linux-gnu".

I'll be happy to re-try with a debug version if someone wants to send me 
a binary.

God bless,        Barry.
