OK, the answer, for some strange reason, was the filename!!?? Since both the Hebrew and Russian 
versions of the book of Acts was affected there had to be a common denominator -- the filenames! 
Both had all the chapters of Acts as Acts_01, Acts_02 etc. I changed them all to 
ActsofApostles_01 etc. and lo and behold the book of Acts now starts as it should with - you 
guessed it - chapter 1 :-)
As for the reason, I really don't know. Any body care to offer an explanation?
