No.  I have just begun to look at it, and it struck me quickly, because the first three verses of Genesis is a passage I had to memorize for Hebrew in Seminary.

Thanks for the info about the Linux side.  I may try downloading a raw module (instead of a windows installer) and see if there is a difference.
