Unfortunately, that doesn't do what Victor asked for.  The neat thing  
about spaces is that you can distribute windows from a single  
application among the spaces.  The problem is that when you do this,  
the console/preview of a file in one space shows up in another space.  
It seems to me that this is potentially a TeXShop problem, in that  
it's not completely Spaces aware.

Your solution just forces all TeXShop windows to be in a single space,  
which might be useful for some things, but sort of defeats the purpose  
of spaces itself.
