[OS X TeX] TeXShop prefs problem.

I just noticed this, while using the latest TeXShop on OS X, 10.11.5.
The console window keeps popping up, even with “no errors”. I finally became sufficiently curious to open prefs, and found that the setting was “always open”; I changed it to “only on errors”, and went back to TeXing. Again, up popped the window.
I garbled around a while, first deciding that maybe I had to quit and restart TeXShop (no); then, maybe it had something to do with the “One Window” environment (no); and finally, I just started TeXShop and w/o opening files, changed the pref again. Still the pref remained set to “always”. Hmm.
Next I plunged into the sketchy world of preference files to see for myself. I found these settings:
ConsoleBehavior = 1;
ConsoleWindowAlpha = "1.00";
"NSWindow Frame Console" = "1982 811 517 376 0 0 2560 1578 ";
"NSWindow Frame ConsoleWindow" = "734 53 504 452 0 0 1440 877 ";
RedConsoleAfterError = NO;
First I tried changing “Red…” to YES (it’s labeled a string, not a boolean, but what the heck). No change.
Maybe “…behavior” is the right one, but what does “1” mean? And what is “not 1”?
At this point, I appear for help!
Thanks, as always.
