[sword-devel] Estonian Module Errors

As I recall, the copy of the Estonian Bible that we used as the basis 
for that module was incomplete and had some errors. Only Genesis, 
Psalms, and I believe either the gospels or the whole NT were available. 
If you know of a better version, please alert us.

The repeated verses are a sign that the module was built with an old 
version of one of our tools, which would copy the previous verse into 
following verses that are empty. It is confusing to the user, but there 
is nothing missing from the module that was present in our source.
