Hi Arno,

thanks for the detailed report! This bug should be resolved in the
recently committed revision 6c34f6b.

This problem was related to the loading of PDF annotations. Essentially,
there was a deadlock with the part of the code loading the annotations
waiting for the rendering to finish and the rendering waiting for the
loading of annotations to finish.
The support of PDF annotations in TeXworks is somewhat incomplete
(better support is on the wishlist, but not very high as this is "just"
the previewer for a TeX editor where PDF annotations usually are not
used excessively). Anyway, your report clearly was a bug that is fixed now.
