I just switched to Xiphos 3.1.6
I have openSuse 12.2 and KDE 4.8.5
Sword + libsword 1.7.1
As I said in previous ticket (#493) it is still the same problem.
Every time I start Xiphos it asks me Yes/No to make URL sword:// default to Xiphos.
When I click 'No' it does not remember because it happens at each start of Xiphos.
