Inspiration has struck.  This seems to be a spell-checking issue.  With
a new installation, I have no dictionaries and everything works
correctly. Altering the pattern file makes no difference.  However, when
I turn on spell-checking (using en-GB dictionaries from Mozilla) the odd
behaviour returns.  I see the same with one of the German dictionaries
from the same source, but whether this is a dictionary issue or a
TeXworks issue I'm not sure.
