[OS X TeX] Texshop "open recent"

Hi All,
Texshop 3.04 has changed the notion of what is the same file in its 
"open recent". I use emacs to edit (because I want to use the same 
editor for all my editing needs).

If I open a file called "foo.tex" in texshop then quit. It will appear 
in my "open recent". However, if I edit it in emacs, then that file 
becomes "foo.tex~" and I have a new "foo.tex". Now in "open recent" in 
texshop, I will have "foo.tex~", which I can't open (and don't want to 
because it is the old version).  This doesn't occur if texshop is open 
while editing. Can we revert back to texshop remembering the name of the 
file, istead of some other notion of the entity of the file?  I'd prefer 
not to have to turn off backups in emacs.
