Just want to mention that I have a user who have complained about the 
same thing. TOC or AUX file has non terminated elements.

As Stefan mentions it looks like TW is ending the TeX process a bit too 
fast, some kind of race condition?

I've never come across a problem like this with other editors.

Wouldn't it be better to run in non-stopmode like most other editors, 
and then parse the log file?
