On the rightmost panel (which loads when I left-click the name), we have the information panel incorrectly showing the excerpt for "Shema, Son of Joel".

In the middle section (which appears when I right-click the name), we have the popup window correctly identifying and linking the LBD article "Shema, Son of Hebron".

What's up with the Information Panel? Is it supposed to behave this way?

Yes, but as a hint for using the forums,  I could have proved it faster if you'd included the tabs in the screen shot so I could wee the resources you were using.

Your top dictionary is LBD which does not have a headword entry for Shema (descendent of Caleb) which is what the Bible is tagged. So it displays the first Shema person that it finds in the headwords and leaves it to you to sort out which Shema is intended. Remember that the initial cut of the tagging is done by machine ... and the machine does know how to resolve the mutltiple Shemas. Many of these get corrected manually or reported as an error for correction. But it they aren't hand linked or if there is an appropriate link available, this behavior is the standard default.

MJ, this is what I assumed as well, but it actually seems to be grabbing the last Shema person.

That could also make sense - although it may also be going against a dataset we don't see and therefore it may be difficult for us to discern the pattern. But then again, when you cut off the tab with the title, you make it difficult for me to duplicate. Sad
