That may or may not be related, but under Tiger: sometimes in TeXShop  
when displaying a PDF file upon opening or when refreshing the  
display after typesetting, all spaces are replaced by other  
characters (like "(", or "&"); the same happens at times when  
printing a text message from Mail.app. Hence it feels like a Tiger bug.

I never found out what triggers this. My impression is the same as  
for Herb, namely that this happens when I'm doing something very  
quickly: like typing Cmd-P immediately after Mail.app has finished  
displaying a message.

I'll see whether the same happens in OS X 10.4.2.
