I had a working CVS compile a few weeks back, but I updated it in order
to try the latest build with bibletime. Of course sword head isn't in a
working state right now, so this path will have to wait until it's

The primary sticking point I'm encountering right now is why bibletime
aborts while initializing the static globals. I've been trying to get
to the bottom of it with gdb, but I lack the familiarity with it to
know how to find what is causing it to abort.

coming along nicely there are some features I'd like to take advantage
