[OS X TeX] TeXShop 1.22 crash

I revised the web page so TeXShop is temporarily unavailable.
But I don't really understand what is happening.

I usually include graphics without a file extension, letting pdflatex
find the appropriate file. Pdflatex will then stop with an error 
but if you push return, it continues and you can typeset everything 
This still works; TeXShop works fine if you don't use graphic file
extensions, etc.

So I tried experiments from the command line to avoid interaction
with TeXShop. It turns out that pdflatex works as I've described above.
However, if the file extension is included and the file is missing, then
pdflatex stops with a fatal error. Since I don't use pdflatex that way,
I don't know if this is new behavior, or has always happened. Do
any of you know?

If pdflatex stops with a fatal error, and if you
then push return in the Terminal window, TeXShop crashes.  Certainly
TeXShop shouldn't crash in this situation, and I'll fix that. It may be 
I haven't seen this problem because before this, the typesetting 
haven't stopped with a fatal error.

As for the blank pdf window, I don't see that here. One bug at a time,
