It's me again. :)

I've tried the svn HEAD for creating this german bible module GerNeUe  
from OSIS.
The verses mentioned below are not shifted anymore.
But i.e. verse 32:33 which is in the source is re-versified as 32:0:
"re-versified Genesis 32:33	as Genesis 32:0"

What dies this mean. Gen 32:0 does not exist so is the verse re- 
versified to nil? :)
