So far, I did not manage to reproduce this problem (with xelatex) on
either Windows XP (which I know is no longer supported; but I have it
easily accessible from my development environment) or Ubuntu 15.04. What
Windows version are you using?

Thanks for looking into this in so much detail. I am working on
rebuilding TeXworks with Qt 5.4.1... (but building Qt takes quite some
time ;))

Kind regards,
