[OS X TeX] MUST zap aux files

Recently I've been running into something that I just don't ever 
remember having to do in the past, and I've been using TeX for quite a 
few years.

Namely, after tripping over certain some mistake or other (say, an extra 
brace or something), even once the error is corrected TeX cannot process 
the file without choking until I delete the aux file.  I have found no 
particular pattern to this.

I'm using TeXShop 2.26 with an up-to-date (according to TeX Live 
Utility) TeX Live 2008 on Mac OS X 10.5.8.   The paper I've been working 
on is in revtex, and I'm using pdflatex.

This isn't terribly serious, but it's just different from anything I 
ever remember having to do, and now when I get a TeX error in the 
console I don't know whether there really is a problem with the source, 
or whether there's just something goofy in the aux file.
