This is the infamous "history bug". It is fixed in our CVS
version (which also has a module manager and tabbed passage
browsing as bonus features). 

If you can't use the CVS version for any reason... I've been
meaning to make a 2.0.1 release available to fix this issue as it
is our #1 reported bug about the 2.0 version, but I've had
problems with my workstation at home (overheating Athlon...). No
ETA for releasing the bugfix version yet, sorry.

BTW, you may want to subscribe to the gnomesword-users and / or
gnomesword-devel lists.
