Because I wanted to use a bunch of screen shots, I posted this on my blog HERE (http://bibleandtech.blogspot.com/2008/11/accordance-bibleworks-and-logos.html).
If you check the blog link, you will see that I provide two ways of using the GSE to find long sentences in the Greek text. The challenge arose out of an interesting post by Rodney Decker on the longest, most complex sentences in the Gospel of Mark. I explain everything more clearly on the blog, but I've attached the two QF files here if you want to play around with them. It involves setting cross verse boundaries and using custom punctuation settings. It's something what can be done with the GSE. (Unzip the two files to your ASE directory. Be sure to limit your range to a single book of the Bible before running the query. BTW, Jim/Michael, feel free to store these query files on the BW blog site.)
