BPBible locale uses Jud for Judges rather than Jude.  I don't think it
is possible to tell easily which one the user might "expect" (though
Jud 19:2 is a pretty fair giveaway), but the modules should be made
unambiguous (if it were using OSIS, as it probably will in the future,
then I think it would use OSIS refs, which are (or should be)

In Sword, Jude X:Y, is Revelation X - 1: Y when X > 1.  I don't think
that behaviour desirable, but some people seem to like it.

I'll say it's a module bug, myself, and that's how BPBible treats it
(though Ben did change the locale to make it work anyway).
