I am not sure what TeXShop does as asked to remove .aux files in two
following situations and I am too lazy to check:

1) One runs master.tex with


in preamble and with


in the body. Would it kill master.aux and parttwo.aux only or it will kill
also partone.aux ?
If I recall correctly  it would leave partone.aux intact so one would not
need to comment out \includeonly and reconstruct partone.aux

2) Some packages create other .aux like files (.toc, .nav, ... ) and I am
not sure if those are removed as well

BTW, one almost sure way to run in this problem is to add or comment out
 \usepackage{hyperref} as with or without hyperref .aux files look
