Well, I have installed TeXShop 2.18, put TeXShop 2.10beta8 in the  
trash can, but the problem remains.

A perfect PDF file is produces, but TeXShop does not display it.  
However, it is willing to display it when the icon of the file is  
dragged to TeXShop.

I made another try with a very huge files (991pages, 75 Mb). At the  
opening, TeXShop could find and display the PDF file. I typeset the  
file, and TeXShop displayed the PDF at once. I typeset another time  
some minutes later, and TeXShop did not displayed the PDF file, and  
it did not accept to do it either, when the icon of the file was  
dragged to TeXShop's one in the Dock (TeXShop 2.18 icon, of course).

Remark. I have installed a new TeXShop, but I have kept TeXLive 2007.

What do you think?
