Still had this happening with Tw from time to time - I have no idea
what condition causes it - is there anything I can look up - a log or

After you quit Tw - the laptop fan still running hot, and CPU usage high.

Tw has disappeared from view - looks like it has shut down.

Tw does not show in Task Manager / Applications list, but does  in
Task Manager / Processes - looking like it is utilising almost all of
half a duel core processor..

Has to be explicitly killed or it looks like it will hang around until
the machine is rebooted or shut down, otherwise when this happens, it
never seems to disappear from Task Manager / Processes by its self.

I'm running ver 729 (just reinstalled it from
TeXworks-w32-v0.3r729-build1.zip, to be sure) but it is misreporting
as version 728
