	Thanks for the report.  Most of this stuff won't be fixed for the 
release of BibleCS.  A few comments below.

> * ESV search .... finds "Jesus" in 2 Sam 1:1, Jonah 1:1, and Malachi 
> 1:1. I think these are "hits" from the notes (opening of chapter)

Yes, this is intended.  SWORD full text search (non-clucene) will search 
based on whatever options you have turned on.  If you repeat the search 
with notes off you shouldn't get those hits.  BibleCS doesn't offer 
options in the search dialog like it probably should (e.g., [x] include 
note text ), instead, it bases the search on the options set for the 
viewed module.

>    - Search for "languages" and Gen 6:9 still shows in lowest window.

Yes, this is intended, but might be a little confusing, I understand. 
The use case is, say, a user performs a search, then double clicks on a 
result line to see the verse in context, then hits the search button 
again to bring the dialog forward... What should it do?  He may wish to 
continue down the result list he had previously been viewing.  It's not 
perfect either way, but it works the way we've decided and the user 
should realize the behavior after a few times.

This is likely an encoding error

>   - 2nd Samuel 1:1

import error

encoding error

> * ESV MultiWord search for "regeneration" finds match in Matthew 19:28

same as notes previously.

Yeah, maybe we should be smarter about this.  Currently we set the 
default type based on whether or not you have and index built.  We could 
probably check if you're searching the same module again and if so, 
don't change the position.

Thanks again for the testing, Lynn.  Very much appreciated.  Regarding 
the encoding/import errors, Crossway has sent us a new datafile for the 
ESV and we'll hopefully have a 2.0 out soon, and DM has some great 
improvements in the works for our osis2mod utility.  We have to get a 
1.0 out soon, though, even if it's not perfect.  Hope you and your 
family are well,
