# [texworks] missing filenames in "Errors, warnings, and badboxes"

Some more details on the problem which could lead to a solution and a
workaround for using the pdfplots package.

First the workaround which looks like the following
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\pgfplotsset{compat=1.12}
\begin{document}
\rule{20cm}{1cm}
\end{document}

The idea for this workaround is from the .aux file which has warning
<warning>
Package pgfplots Warning: running in backwards compatibility mode (unsuitable t
ick labels; missing features). Consider writing \pgfplotsset{compat=1.12} into
</warning>

I also think that the above warning message is what causes trouble for
the logParser script.
The parenteses on multiple lines might confuse the parser, that is at
least what I expect.
