The problem is in TeX web2c version 7.3.1. When you run pdftex, you are 
running a newer version that does not have this problem.

Apart from updating my entire TeX setup to TeX live (from teTeX) I see 
no quick way to fix this, but I'm looking into it.


PS. TeXShop has nothing to do with it. TeXShop handles .tex source 
(editing it) and PDF-output (displaying it). The whole rigamarole in 
between is out of its hands and is done in the background by a fairly 
standard unix teX-distribution.

PS. Please us a subject line when you post.
