By the way, what happens if you use the display, inline or text modes? I assume the MacTeX you installed is 2010? Have you updated to all the latest versions of the files using TeX Live Utility or tlmgr directly? Are you telling LaTeXiT to compile with pdflatex? Also, what OS version are you using?

Good Luck,
