At least the linux file is not the correct one. The one you mention is
just the template from the source code that gets copied to your "real"
configuration directory, which should be ~/.TeXworks/completion

I just tested your modifications on Linux (Ubuntu 9.04) and maybe found
If I enter "bequ" and press tab I get the modified environment (i.e.
with "test" in the middle). If I write "\begin{equa" and press tab I
still get the old one. The problem is that there are several different
shortcuts to get the equation environment. Just search for "equation" in
tw-latex.txt. You'll find (amongst others) a line starting with
"{equation}" which is the one that gets used in your case.

I imagine this is because Ctrl-Tab is used by the operating system (to
tab through sub-windows). But I'd need further investigations to confirm
this.
