The listed web page says the problem is caused by applications which  
did not provide
a value for the CFBundleIdentifier key, and it recomments opening up  
the application's
bundle and modifying the Info.plist file to include a value for this  

However, TeXShop has always provided a value for the key. So no cigar.

The above web page directs users to a thread on Apple's Discussion  
board, where the
CFBundleIdentifier fix is listed,. But later messages in the thread  
point out several applications
which have this problem and yet have a CFBundleIdentifier.  
Mathematica is one of these

I'd like to know a general solution. Keep working.

PS: This problem did occur here (and I know that many users will be  
happy to hear about it
as revenge for problems they have had).  In my case, the problem was  
fixed by RCDefaultApps.
