"Optimized Search" uses the Lucene index and Lucene syntax. The other 
three search types produce the old behavior with no index use.

Since Multi Word is just the old behavior, you'll get the old bevaior. 
If you use the Optimized Search, you'll get 1867 hits for the same 
search. This is correct behavior for Lucene and is not a bug.

You need to click on one of the search results in order for it to appear 
in the preview pane.

It looks like there is a bug here. If the module you want to search is 
hidden in the main window tabs, it shows up in the search treeview but 
cannot be selected. (Reported on the JIRA bug tracker as BCS-17.)

Yes and no, I guess. You didn't search the ISV, you searched the KJV, so 
it found 0 results in the ISV. I don't know if we should attempt to 
correct/account for bad user behavior.

I'm guessing this is on the same selection that happened mid-search.

Deselecting "Verse on New Line" reverts to Paragraph presentation. If we 
have no paragraphing information, it shows up as a single paragraph per
