OK, the short version: I rebooted the computer and everything was fine, 
which makes me feel kind of stupid.

The long version: I removed ~/library/Texshop, but then TeXshop wouldn't 
start at all because some macros were missing. I couldn't re-install it 
from the dmg file because there were "too many processes open". The 
activity monitor crashed when I tried to start it. When I re-booted, 
there was a kernel panic. The second re-boot worked, and TeXshop also 
worked again. Is this normal? I found it really scary.

Thanks Gary, Chris and Herb for your help!
