That is a puzzling report.  Is anyone else seeing anything like this?

I removed the module name entry from the index, so the first entry should 
be 00001.  Then after the 08853 entry, Hebrew words should be listed in 
the box.  In any case, if entry names are present, the definitions should 
be present too because they're contained in the same file.

You're sure this is the version from the beta area?  Or did I misinterpret
what you meant about seeing the module name? (Maybe BT prints this for
each entry?)

I should really boot to Linux and try these things out every so often. :)

This sounds like a Bibletime bug (or an unforseen case).  I have never 
been that familiar with BT's abilities, so maybe one of the developers 
could comment on whether this is the case.
