Someone on the TeXShop Forum came up with a rather strange problem  
using either xetex 0.996 (or 0.9995 in the TL-2009 pretest) involving  
file names with spaces in them. Using a file with name `Summary  
II.tex' the following error was generated

! I can't find file `"Summary II.texSELFAUTOPARENT"'.
<*> "Summary II.tex"SELFAUTOPARENT

on his system, with a similar error (SELFAUTOPARENT is expanded) on my  
system. Using `Summary 2.tex' or removing the space, `SummaryII.tex',  
works fine while `Summary 22.tex' fails.

Good Luck,
