[texworks] Problem opening TeXworks with .tex file

Under Windows 7  and 8.1 I usually associate TeXworks with files with a 
.tex extension. Before TeXworks-w32-0.5-r1351 double-clicking on any tex 
file would open TeXworks with that file in the editor. With all versions 
after up to r1364 that this does not work any more: TeXworks opens with 
the file visible in the editor (but without syntax highlighting) and 
then crashes with an error message to the effect that TeXworks has 
stopped working. When I open TeXworks on its own and then drag a tex 
file into it there is no problem. Has anyone else noticed this? I 
experience the problem on all my computers.
