That's certainly a different problem, but since migrating to Tiger  
I'm seeing from time to time something very odd: files sent to the  
printer or displayed in TeXShop's preview window have all their space  
characters replaced by another character, generally a double quote "  
or an ampersand &. When that happens, reprinting the file or re- 
displaying it clears the problem.

I could see no logical pattern to this. I have the impression this  
happens when I print a file very quickly (before or as soon as it's  
completely displayed), or display it in TeXShop and click on the  
preview window very quickly (before or as soon as the window content  
is completely displayed), but I'm not sure.

This seems to be just one more of the -- numerous -- bugs in Tiger.
