[OS X TeX] ScriptEditor has taken over .tex!

     I believe a related topic was discussed previously on this list,  
but I wasn't able to track down the resolution (probably a wrong  
search term on my part).  I recently upgraded to 10.4 and have  
discovered that all my .tex files are now claimed by ScriptEditor.   
If, in the file Info window, I try to change that to "TeXShop  
(version 2.0)" with the "Open with" option and click the "Change  
All..." button, the change simply does not stick.  Worse, that action  
appears to reset some other .tex files I'd changed by hand back to  
ScriptEditor!  Thus, it appears that I have to change each  
individually -- and *not* click "Change All..." -- to get the  
settings to stick.  Any suggestions other than hunting down and  
changing all 400+ .tex files on my Mac by hand?  Any way to prevent  
this from re-occurring?  Thanks in advance.
