Well, at least there is a temporal proximity between TexShop crashing 
and ceasing to latex my file, my attempts to get it to work properly 
again or to re-install it, and the kernel panic. Other applications 
continued to work fine, and even the TeXShop editor worked. Only the  
the activity monitor crashed, but I would imagine that TeXShop's "too 
many processes" were to blame for that. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I guess Chris is right: I should backup my files now.
