xml2gbs converts OSIS & ThML documents to GenBook modules.  The above 
are all GenBook module files.

A tab will show up if you have a .conf file that indicates a module 
exists, regardless of whether it actually does.  The .conf file you have 
below is for a commentary module (not a GenBook module), so Sword is 
looking for a different bunch of files from what you have in the 
directory.  You should pick one of the GenBook modules (e.g. 
SummaTheologica or Josephus) as the basis for your .conf file.
