Seems we're still only left with fickle bugs nowadays ;).
It's also not document-specific (i.e., if it occurs in a document once,
it also occurs for that doc after restarting Tw), is it?

Yes. It's called .conf on Linux, sorry for that - I was not quite sure
how it's called on Windows (it's Qt implementation-specific).

No. The preferences setting is sort of a default value used, e.g., for
new documents. Once a document has a setting, that is no longer affected
by the preferences. It can be changed in the "Format" menu, though.

I just checked, and indeed it is (src/TeXDocument.cpp, l. 1364). You
should be able to disable the recent file list, however, by setting
maxRecentFiles=0 in TeXworks.ini (though I never tried this).
