A similar problem was reported earlier in the Darby and it is fixed in  
the latest nightly build. Hopefully, it is fixes your problem too.

The nightly build is back up and running for Mac and Linux but not  
Windows. If you are running Windows grab the JSword binary build,  
either zip or tar.gz and replace the jars in your BibleDesktop folder.  
You can get it from http://www.crosswire.org/ftpmirror/pub/jsword/nightly 

Let me know if this helps.

In Him,
