[OS X TeX] TS opens multiple copies of same root and PDF

I have also observed this behaviour recently, and also when working on a file with several \included files and the corresponding % !TEX root = marks.

A related problem was that when saving, several copies of the saved (non-root) file appeared in the working folder, with the same name and different date/time. However, if I clicked on one of the files, or if the folder was closed and open again, only the most recent copy remained. I considered this rather an OS problem, but who knows. This problem seems to have dispappeared.

BTW, I am still with 10.9.5, but with the latest TS version.

All source files are in the same folder. I select in the finder all the source files and double-click to open them simultaneously. TS opens all the source files plus *two* copies of the PDF. The second copy is  opened if I have selected a chapter and the root file. If I select only the root file or only chapters, TS opens only one PDF. This happened reproducibly.
