If I understand it correctly, the problem is that Apple has decided  
to map the "toggle windows" features to a actual key on the keyboard  
(the one next to the left shift key). Since this key is mapped to  
different characters depending on your system language, this causes  
problems in specific system languages only, iirc German and French.
This is really annoying, since a developer who uses another language  
will not recognize the problem. OmniOutliner has the same problem,  
for example.

You can edit the Mainmenu.nib in the TeXShop package. This has worked  
for me.
Please ask if you need detailed instructions.

But I just saw Dick's post, so you might want to wait for the next  
version which fixes the problem.
