Many thanks. It's a relief to know I'm not crazy or stupid (or any more
than I usually am anyway).

On the other hand, the bug (if it is a bug) has to do with exactly the
observation you made on my misuse of dc:creator as an rdf type. When I
replaced the offending code

                 <rdfs:label>Gehry, Frank O., 1929-</rdfs:label>


       <rdfs:label>Gehry, Frank O., 1929-</rdfs:label>

The problem simply evaporated. (I left the owl:sameAs statement only in
the authorities.n3 file. Jena drew the correct inference, and longwell
correctly displayed it as two equivalent resources.) It would seem that
the longwell 'referring resources' code expects dc:creator to be used as a
property. Not a bug, a *feature*, yes?
