[texworks] Crash with Save As

I just tried version 3, r670 that came with MiKTeX 2.9.  (I've been 
using 2.0 for a long time, since -- as somebody recently pointed out -- 
no new Windows builds have been posted recently.)

With 2.0, I sometimes made small changes to a file and then hit the 
"Compile" button, knowing that the file would be saved before 
compilation.  Doing this with r670 causes TeXworks to crash.

It also crashes when doing File/Save As after starting a new file or 
when making changes to an existing one.  I'm using Vista with SP1 installed.

I don't know whether this is a problem specific to the MiKTeX version or 
not.  If non-MiKTeX users here can confirm it does not happen for them, 
I'll report the bug on the MiKTeX forum.  (I know that version 3 is not 
guaranteed to be stable, so perhaps it was not a good idea for it to be 
included in MiKTeX, but crashing on a simple save/as certainly is nasty
