Request for clarification is always a good thing.

You are testing for fine thing. Both footnote and duplicate header
types of things are exactly correct, but see below:
> Does the duplicated headers not qualify and should not be reported, for
> example? (COM-9)
Did you try to see if they are duplicated on swordweb?
If not, please try. If the verse on which you see an error in BibleCS
displays fine at the link above, then please do not report the problem.
> How about the erratic "hover" notes? (MOD-36)
same as above. If a note doesn't work in BibleCS, try to find that
exact same note at the link above. If it works at the link above, then
please do not report the bug.

If you have reported a bug which fails the aformentioned algorithm
above, please close your own bug. You should have permission to close
your own bug (I would think, but I could be wrong).

No. If I give a date, I will miss it. Though, I finished my last paper
for this semester last night (early this morning), so it's looking good
that it will be soon.

I'm sorry, I don't remember your email. Did you have a response from
anyone? If not, please ask again. As I try to compile BibleCS on
Windows soon, I might run into your issue, so it may be moot.

Thanks for your persistence-- never giving up. :)
