I investigated a bit ... I changed the registry entries

My Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\libronixdls\shell\open\command


My Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\sword\shell\open\command

to call a .bat file that contains two lines:

cd /D D:\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\
start sword-icu.exe %1

and that works (you may need quotes around the filename in the registry
entry), but it only works once, as sword overwrites the registry back to
what it was. (It doesn't overwrite the libronixdls one though, that keeps
working if changed as above.)
