However, if I close that file (and its corresponding Console and Preview in TeXShop), and send TeXShop ANOTHER file to process, it will compile and preview not only that file, BUT ALSO THE FIRST FILE processed by TeXShop.  To prevent TeXShop from doing this, I have to quit TeXShop and launch it again for every new file on which I work.

How do you have TeXShop configured? E.g., how do you have the `On Startup' item on the Source Tab of TeXShop->Preferences set up as well as the `External Editor' setting in the Preview Tab?

Good Luck,
