[jsword-devel] new eBible repo testing

I think this problem and other related problems in And Bible might be
related to the new version of JSword because I am also having problems with
certain books from other repos.

Since upgrading to the latest version of JSword I am seeing unzip problems
with certain files e.g. HindiERV, СПВП, and many from eBible.

Also, one user has found that foreign characters in the conf Description
field prevent previously installed modules loading.  Coincidentally all the
above modules have foreign characters in their description field.  Does
anybody recall a change in this area during the last 6 months, which was
the time since my last build of jsword?

The error I get when attempting to install a zip is:

Not a zip archive
java.util.zip.ZipException: Not a zip archive
at java.util.zip.ZipFile.readCentralDir(ZipFile.java:385)
at java.util.zip.ZipFile.<init>(ZipFile.java:163)
at java.util.zip.ZipFile.<init>(ZipFile.java:119)
at org.crosswire.common.util.IOUtil.unpackZip(IOUtil.java:86)

I need to do more investigation but wondered if anybody had any ideas
regarding this problem.

Can the above modules be installed without problems in BibleDesktop?
