IMHO, this means that the finder caches the icons somewhere and does not 
update the cache as expected

I also suggest you to delete the LS's and reinstall TS, what will take 
half a second.

Maybe you can change the name to say "TeXShop 1.17" just in case Mac OS 
X caches info to force an update. Then associate the .tex files to this 
new named app as default app. If it works you can revert to the standard 

well, if it does no work, save your work, format your disk, reinstall 
mac os x, reinstall your work...
and don't forget to scream...

Launch services are strange, i had similar problems with some apple 
developper apps
