[OS X TeX] TeXShop and BBEdit problems

I did a clean install of 10.4 and loaded Gerben's distribution with  
TeX Live 2004, and can typeset with LaTeX with no problems.  
TeXniscope works just fine, and the new TeXShop looks impressive,  
especially with the new synchronization capability. On my 550 MHz  
titanium Powerbook, keyboard to screen rendering with large source  
files is considerably faster than it was, although it's still a  
little sluggish, especially compared to BBEdit.

After using BBEdit 8.2 for a while, it suddenly popped up a message  
that said that I was an unlicensed user and that it was going to  
quit. The problem is that I was a licensed user, had previously  
entered the serial number, and brought BBEdit up and down multiple  
times with no complaints. I re-entered the serial number and it's now  
working again.

After typesetting with TeXShop, the PDF preview came forward in focus  
as expected with no problem. However, when I clicked inside the text  
area of the source editor to bring that back into focus, I got an  
unending spinning beach ball and my fan got pretty loud. I had to  
force quite TeXShop.

Somewhat off topic, the new Mail program is faster on my machine than  
the old version, and very responsive, contrary to some reports that  
I've seen that it is sluggish on older and slower machines.
