I added these bugs to the bugtracker.

Looks like superscripted tildes aren't removed.

Nope. It's always been that way. If any module has an toggleable option, 
the toggle appears.

I don't really know what's going on with the OSISStrongs/OSISLemma 
classes. This probably fits under that umbrella. This particular 
behavior, I can't recreate.

It doesn't have Strong's. It has morphology and lemmata (full word, not 
Strong's numbers).

MorphGNT has just one set of lemmas. Tisch has Strong's plus two sets 
(full word) of lemmas.

It actually works fine for me. With a Greek dictionary, it even gets 
close to the correct value, when using the lemmas for lookup.

The refusal to install issue should probably be addressed by allowing 
users to install unsupported modules, but forcing them to acknowledge 
via a dialog box. Or there could be a global setting in InstallMgr.

In Tisch? It works fine for me with both turned on, but there's 
definitely a need for repair to those two classes, as I've mentioned.

I suppose I really ought to upload a copy of the latest build from SVN 
of BibleCS so that we're all at least working with the current code. I 
will do that shortly....
