Maybe the former.  I had overlooked the fact that I had had to roll
my production VM back by about six weeks when it became badly
corrupted, as a result of which I had reverted to TeX Live 2011 and
an earlier TeXworks; just tried directly launching TeX Live 2013
TeXworks (which will slave TeX Live 2013 XeTeX) and all worked
normally ...  Very odd !
