[OS X TeX] OT-File ownership

Recently I opened up the Script Editor---just thinking about working  
on some---but never got to it. All of a sudden, most of my .tex and  
all of my .sty files are now "owned" by the Script Editor. Some have  
the Script Editor icon; some the TeXShop icon, but all open by  
default with the Script Editor. I can change an individual file so  
that TeXShop will open it, but "Change all..." does not work. An  
individual .tex file opened in TeXShop once saved will revert to  
Script Editor as the owner app.

I rebuilt Launch Services and restarted to no avail. Although not  
specifically related to TeX on OS X, the only files that appear to be  
affected are .tex and .sty files. The behavior is inconsistent--- 
compiling using pdftricks ala Herb Schulz, the intermediate .tex  
files with the pstricks code all have the appropriate "owner." Any  
suggestions would be appreciated.
