[texworks] Trying to build TeXworks on Xubuntu 8.10

I think this might be indeed the case. What I did was actually to edit the
postinst script and rebuild the .deb. Now it works and I can build TeXworks
successfully. Your suggestion might have been a better solution, though.
What I did is inelegant at best and dangerous at worst! :)

Anyway, thanks for the answer.
