[OS X TeX] ams problems

For the second time in a week, I'm having problems with an ams 
package. I'm finding it  hard to believe there isn't some core 
problem with ams in my LaTex installation.

My current problem is when the amsthm.sty package is loaded I get the 
following error on compilation:


! LaTeX Error: Command \proof already defined.
                Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

The file compiles correctly as far as I can see, but it's hard to 
check every little detail. Even when I have no text in a document if 
this amsthm package loaded I'll get the error so it has nothing to do 
with incorrectly coded text. It's as if my installation does not want 
to use the amsthm package for some reason.
