[sword-devel] BibleCS 1.5.99

I noticed that installmanager.exe requires icudt40.dll, while sword.exe 
requires icudt42.dll, so I infer that this installmanager.exe is a bit 
old. (Unless I'm being forgetful, a recompile should link to the newer 
dll automatically.)

The test zip will also need the new locale files for anyone wishing to 
use a non-English locale.

Since most versions of Windows now support icons much larger than 
32x32x8bpp, the icons are looking pretty dated. I uploaded a couple of 
new icons to SVN that we could consider. The BibleCS icon I uploaded is 
decent. The InstallManager icon is just the modules icon from the news 
page, which is just a photo of some books from my bookshelf, so it 
doesn't look as good. But both look a lot nicer on the Win7 taskbar or 

The only bug I've spotted (not that I've had much time to play with it) 
pertains to non-KJV v11n: If I select a non-KJV Bible with non-KJV 
books, then select one of those non-KJV books, it pulls up Ch. 1 
correctly. But it immediately changes the book (in the drop down and the 
commentary panel, but not in the Bible panel) to Revelation and changes 
the book list drop down to include only the KJV books. It's caused by 
the focus on a non-KJV commentary in the commentary panel, since the 
commentary looks up a book not present in the KJV v11n, which ends up 
snapping back to Rev in the KJV v11n. Changing to a GenBook allows 
normal navigation.
