This can be fixed, in case you have Xcode installed, by double-clicking the pref file ~/Library/Preferences/org.tug.TeXworks.plist which opens in Property List Editor. There, locate the binaryPaths items and edit /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/universal-darwin to /usr/texbin manually. Like this

Not a long-term solution, but a temporary fix, allowing to use the TeX Distribution system pref panel to switch texdist structures if need be. For example, to switch between the 32-bit binaries in TeXLive-2009 which makes /usr/texbin a symlink to /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/universal-darwin, and the 64-binaries in TeXLive-2009-64 which makes /usr/texbin a symlink to /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/universal-darwin-64.

I tried with the latest stable release (r466) and the situation was the same already: this setting of the Editor window isn't intended as persistent, together with the other settings in the Window > Show submenu of the editor window

	Typeset Toolbar
	Edit Toolbar

and in the Window > Show submenu of the preview window

	PDF Info

In any case, they do not seem to have any associated entry in the preference file ~/Library/Preferences/org.tug.TeXworks.plist.
