I do not have an /Applications/TeX folder because when I installed I 
just did "TeX Live 2010" and unselected "GUI Applications". LaTeXiT 
is installed manually in ~/local/Applications/. I tested dragging it 
to /Applications but that did not change anything. I have deleted 
the following files:

rm -fR ~/local/Applications/LaTeXiT.app/
rm ~/Library/Preferences/*LaTeXiT*
rm -fR ~/Library/Applications\ Support/LaTeXiT
rm -fR /var/folders/z6/z62NpG5hFDiqBHw7fg77DE+++TI/-Tmp-/LaTeXiT-2.3.0/

I have re-downloaded LaTeXiT and the problems persists.
