I'm not having problems like you're seeing on my Powerbook G4.

Have you tried to remove the preferences file (~/Library/Preferences/ 
TeXShop.plist) and restarting TeXShop? Crashing on start up of any  
application is often, but not always, due to a corrupted preferences  

Finally, you can submit bug reports (with the crash log) at the  
TeXShop project bug reporter site, <http://sourceforge.net/tracker/? 

Good Luck,
