Thank you, Arno : I see what is happening.
I did indeed try "File/Open", but left the
default file type as "TeX documents (*.tex)"
and overwrote the blank "File name" box
with "*.log".  In other applications, the
*.log would normally override the "Files of
type" filter, but it would seem that TeXworks
reverses the order of precedence.

I am surprised, though, that TeXworks appears
to lack the "Document/Log file" feature of
WinEDT, with which I am more familiar.
