[sword-devel] BoM Bug in module/Beta T

	What you said makes sense, with one exception and not to say you
are wrong. The exception is the type of machine that I am running is an
Athlon XP 220+ (Brand New 1.8 GHz). I also just in the last couple of
days reloaded my system, which means partially since I still haven't
loaded everything things are running faster than they eventually will.
The only other thing I will say is that the only way I could exit my
Sword program, either version (Beta or release) was by ctrl-alt-del and
an end task command from windows. Does anyone else have suggestions.
Could it be that the Generic book is not a sword native format like the
Dictionary is, I am thinking the ISBE and Webster's Dictionary modules
that are on my computer are rather huge files, 40+ Meg.
	I am curious, does anyone else have a thought?

You might find that if you went away and had a couple of cups of coffee,

the program had started and the BoM was showing!  I thought the program
crashed when I first looked at general book support - it is just very,
slow, even on a reasonable box!  I think it depends on the size of the 
general book module as to how long it takes.  I haven't downloaded BoM,
judging from the size of the printed version, it's relatively big.
take ages to start on my box.

God bless,
