Indeed... I only fixed the bug that you reported, not the bug you didn't 
report. ;)  If you can provide a bug report with some input that 
predictably produces erroneous output or gets stuck, I can fix the bug.

I'm not sure what could concern you about a multithreaded application. 
In this case, the script gives each USFM file to a separate thread for 
processing and does them in parallel, attempting to keep all of your 
processor's logical cores fully utilized. You can always turn 
multithreading off (i.e. set the thread count to 1), but it really won't 
change anything other than the running time.
