I'm having a big problem with TeXshop 2.38 and MacOS10.6.7. This problem just
came to light in the past week, so very likely related to 10.6.7.

I set a file with default Computer Modern fonts.
Sometimes the resulting file is OK. Sometimes I get "could not extract font"
and garbled glyphs in place of some CMMI characters. Sometimes Adobe Acrobat 
Pro 9 and X hang when viewing the file. Sometimes I send the file to PC users
and they cannot open them.

This is a big issue for me, so any workaround would be welcome. One thing 
that helped was to reset the document in Palatino using
This makes me wonder if standard LaTeX fonts are old and need to be replaced.

Thanks for any advice.
