Indeed it didn't.

You wrote earlier, about test version 4.33:

> Herb is correct, that should be the number 13. I added to TeXShop some code that killed all aux files and ran the task again when the previous task ended with error 13. But that was klunky. We don't want to "work around" this error; instead we want to "get rid" of the error. This preference setting says to avoid the work around, and just see if the error is reduced or eliminated.

Is this still current?

In other words, are we supposed to change these options' values, even if none was set previously?

On my setup:

% defaults read TeXShop DisplayLogInfo
2019-09-03 23:21:55.552 defaults[4319:95556] 
The domain/default pair of (TeXShop, DisplayLogInfo) does not exist

% defaults read TeXShop UseTerminationHandler
2019-09-03 23:22:20.901 defaults[4320:95654] 
The domain/default pair of (TeXShop, UseTerminationHandler) does not exist

% defaults read TeXShop RepeatTypesetOnError13
2019-09-03 23:22:40.376 defaults[4327:95783] 
The domain/default pair of (TeXShop, RepeatTypesetOnError13) does not exist
