Sorry if this has been brought up (and resolved) previously (I'm still  
using r481 on my Ubuntu box).

TeXworks offers the ability to trash aux files. I find this function  
very handy in some cases where I make an error resulting in  
unsuccessful compilations. However, by default, TeXworks will offer  
you to trash all aux files (.toc,.aux,.log)  it finds in the current  
working directory. In my case, this is generally not what I want to  
do. I just want to clear the 'current_file.aux' file (corresponding to  
the 'current_file.tex', which I'm editing at the moment). While I can  
uncheck the other aux files I want to keep, this makes the "Trash aux  
files" operation needing multiple clicks. It would be better, IMHO, if  
there's an option for TeXworks to trash only current_file.aux by
