The preference list of User1, that is User1/Library/Preferences/ 
TeXShop.plist, says : UseOgreKit Boolean <space>Yes, and it works.

I have replaced the preference list of User2 by that of User1, and I  
have checked they were identical. But now, in the plist, the OgreKit  
line reads:
UseOgreKit String YES (no space before YES),
and it still doesn't work, although the OgreKit button looks checked  
(blue) in the Preferences panel.

The preference file of User3, says : UseOgreKit String YES (no space  
before YES), and it doesn't work either. (And the OgreKit button is  
checked (blue).)

Maybe I made some mistake going from one user to the other, but the  
fact has been there for some time: only one user can use OgreKit.

I think it is not yet time to send a bug report.
