Didn't work.

I have made a little experiment. I have thrown to the Corbeille  
(French name for basket ? dust bin ?) everything I could found that  
wore the name TeXShop at the three users' and the Applications  

Then I logged in as User3, and installed TeXShop. I did nothing else  
that making the TeXShop icon just unloaded slide into the  
Applications directory. Now, User3 has the OgreKit search panel, and  
User1 and User2 have the Apple search panel.

Regarding TeXShop.plist, all three have the same UseOgreKit line :  
string YES.

Regarding the Preferences panel, all three have a blue light in front  
of OgreKIt.

Had not Alan Munn told me that he has not this problem on his multi- 
user machine, I would think there is a bug somewhere.
