(just a small comment as an addition to the not-so-recent thread on 
tex-ghostscript typesetting not working in TeXShop:)

I have noticed that if I start TeXShop by clicking (i.e. Finder or 
Dock), tex-ghostscript typesetting does not work for me (nothing happens 
at all). If I, however, start TeXShop from the terminal, e.g. by typing 
"open file.tex", tex-ghostscript works just fine. This seems to support 
the theory about .cshrc-strangeness. It may also be a less awkward 
"solution" to the problem than editing the .cshrc file (until this bug 
is fixed...).
