Yeah, segfaults usually don't give much information, unfortunately. I
have a few questions:
 * Does this happen also if you just run Tw and close it again
immediately (i.e., don't open any files, etc.)?
 * Does this happen if you disable/remove the plugins? By default they
should be in /usr/local/lib/texworks, I think.
 * If none of the above help, does this also happen if you install the
build from https://launchpad.net/~texworks/+archive/ppa? In case you
installed your private build somewhere in /usr, take care that the
correct version is run (e.g. by checking the build id in Help > About
TeXworks...). I just mention this because problems like this have
happened to me several times ;).
