You're right. But what is listed there is customizable (through
<resources>/configuration/texworks-config.txt). After all, you wouldn't
want, say, .tex files ending up there, and Tw doesn't know about file
types (for it, all files are text or image files).
So, the question is: should we add .bbl files to that list, or could
they be non-auxiliary files (under some usual workflow)?
