Yes, I believe that HunKar must have a  "[Testament Heading]" and this 
is possibly a special case that many other modules don't have. If I set 
the parameter to "1" on versekey.cpp line 522 the indexing of the book 
works fine.

     if ((!strncmp(buf, "[ Testament ", 12)) &&
         (isdigit(buf[12])) &&
         (!strcmp(buf+13, " Heading ]"))) {
         curKey->Book(0);  // versekey.cpp line 522 ::ParseVerseList
