Appreciate your assistance on this. e-Sword does work in my case, in that clicking on the note area allows me to type into the note area (focus regained by wine).

Checked out the bug, did not seem to apply. I'm running 1.2-rc3, should the reversion have taken place for that? Also the behaviour I'm describing didn't start with 1.2, happened with 1.1.23 onwards at least (perhaps before but I wasn't using it then yet.
