It's not connected with TeXShop at all. It is connected with teTeX,  
inside /Library/teTeX.

What you may try, if you're looking for a short-term fix, is make a  
local copy of /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/graphics/ 
pdftex.def inside your personal texmf tree, at ~/Library/texmf/tex/ 
latex/graphics/pdftex.def (create any folder as required), and then  
comment out the offending call to supp-pdf.tex inside this local  
copy, namely:

% v0.02e: Restore catcodes of context letters.
% Not needed with current version of supp-pdf
% but protects against older versions.
     \catcode`\noexpand\?\the\catcode`\? }%

(towards the end of the file). The local copy will take precedence  
over that inside /Library/teTeX.
