I've seen all sorts of weird things happen here in my lab with colleagues using Migration Assistant, and ending up with a patchwork of preferences, caches and support files from different software versions, which invariably raises compatibility issues sooner or later.

Just deleted the font cache the suggested way, no difference :(

And yes, I migrated from an 'old' MacBook UniBody 10.6 to my current MacBookPro 10.6, but same OS versions and same users, including the two with no problems. And I hadn't TeXWorks at this time.

I can't believe that only 'my' TeXWorks has problems, and that no other user or program has these problems.
I think, that's why people don't like computers :)

May be I have done something really bad in a former life ...
