[texworks] MocOS Yosemite issues

Hello all,

As I'm sure some people on the list know, Apple in their wisdom have
altered how the environment is passed to programs in Yosemite. For
TeXworks, this means that any multi-part processes fail, for example
XeTeX/XeLaTeX, ConTeXt, Arara, etc., unless TeXworks is launched from
the Terminal.

>From discussion on the MacTeX list, it seems TeXShop doesn't suffer from
these issues as it obtains the environment in some different
(Apple-sanctioned?) way, while a fix has been posted for LyX to deal
with the issue. Is there any chance of similar attention for TeXworks:
it's currently a bit of a pain having to remember to 'work around' this.
