More blunder: that was actually correct. I had forgotten I had set  
earlier, in Terminal:

     defaults write TeXShop UseOldHeadingCommands YES

and omitted afterwards to reset it back to the default:

     defaults write TeXShop UseOldHeadingCommands NO

There are some details about this in the file IMPORTANT_README, under  
"Beware! Changing Encoding Requires Care".

This also means that the XeTeX samples should be changed at some  
point, to reflect TeXShop's new syntax.

Hoping I'm not making another mistake this time,
