#168 osis-based commentary's xrefs don't work

pierre dumuid observed in sword-devel on 02 Feb that in his new osis-based commentary, using xrefs thus...

<reference osisRef="Ephesians.1.1">Ephesians 1:1</reference>

...the links do not work. they display correctly as underlined/colored links, but clicking them does not in fact send the verse to the verse list or put the verse into the previewer.

i for one do not know enough about osis yet to know whether he has actually constructed correct references for GS to interpret; however he claims that WinSword and BibleTime react properly to it.

a copy of the module in question is in hand, but it is not (yet?) considered generally redistributable, so i'm not uploading it with this bug report.

    terry has discovered that this problem was in a sword lib routine, for which he has now submitted a fix. if you build out of sword SVN, the xref links in crossrefs should be fine after "svn up" to -r2028 and a rebuild/reinstall.
