This would be a bug. It has been reported, is fixed and will be a part 
of the next release.

If you don't want to wait you can get a nightly build zip file from 
Replace BibleDesktop's jsword-1.0.jar and jsword-common-1.0.jar with the 
ones from the zip.
Don't replace the other jars.

If you have any more questions or issues with BibleDesktop, let's 
discuss them on the jsword-devel or the bibledesktop-user mailing list.
