There was a `fix' in beamerbaseboxes.sty reported. The line (around  
line 116 of the file)

  \setbox\bmb at colorbox=\hbox{\color{lower.bg}}%

should be replaced by

  \setbox\bmb at colorbox=\hbox{{\pgfpicturetrue\pgfsetcolor{lower.bg}}}%

I don't think this is a permanent fix though.

I copied beamerbaseboxes.sty to ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/ 
ChangedFiles/ and did the edit (adding something to make it easy to  
find again) on that copy. It will be used instead of the original  
since ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/... will be searched before the other  
directories for .sty files.

Good Luck,
