I assume that you mean processing foo.tex produces and previews bar.pdf, correct?

Anyway, this is not what I see. For me under Mavericks, the first use of this script does the correct thing, the second doesn’t do anything, I guess because now its getting and catching the error Michael mentioned. I don’t see two open pdf windows, though.
