it would seem we do have a bullet point for you after all. As Alain
Delmotte reported on another thread, the "line mangling" issue wasn't
resolved completely after all. So I'd suggest something along the lines
of the following:
* TeXworks, as distributed, sometimes mangles lines, in particular for
long (1000+ lines) documents. When moving the cursor across such lines,
TeXworks crashes. As a workaround, disable and re-enable "Line Numbers".
Investigations of this problem are ongoing and the issue will be fixed
in the repository as soon as a patch is available.
