I actually got it to work on the command line once on a test file, but when I reran it on a real file I got the [][][][][][][][][]... error. Do I have to edit the texmf.cnf file for this new .xfmt file? I thought I'd check this before mucking about.

Update: I edited the texmf.cnf file for XGenealogue.xfmt, and everything works extremely well from the command line.

TeXShop is still a problem, however.
