[OS X TeX] the console in TeXShop 2.20

Hello all,

I like that in TeXShop 2.20 we should have the ability to set the font and color of the console window.

However, I've noticed that when I tell it to be, say, Monaco 9pt, the console will switch to that font, but the change in font does not survive a quitting of TeXShop, nor does it survive a complete closing of whatever document I was working on.

What does survive is that TeXShop *thinks* the font of the console should be Monaco 9pt---that's what it says in the preferences window.  But alas, it's in reality displaying in what appears to be Arial or something similar (Helvetica?).

This behavior happens on three different setups: Leopard, Tiger on Intel, and Tiger on PPC.

Moreover, the exact same thing is true of the background color of the console window.  It will not stick.

Has anyone else noticed this?
