[OS X TeX] TeXShop bug related to selecting an unmatched brace

Hi there,

Three times today, and sometimes in the past, I have experienced 
TeXShop crashes which I think are bugs. This happened in TeXShop editor 
as I had just selected an unmatched brace (, and was about to paste 
some text (Cmd-V) on it. I'm not sure it's fully reproducible.

By the way, in the list of suggestions for possible TeXShop 
improvement: please, please, please, give the user the possibility to 
disactivate the automatic selection of the matching brace and of all 
the text in between when one brace (parenthesis, square bracket, curly 
brace) is selected.

Very often, when editing a mathematical formula, I select a brace of 
one type to transform it into a brace of another type; doing this I 
realize after a few seconds (or more) that I have replaced not only the 
former brace, but also the matching brace and all the text in between, 
by the new brace I have just typed. Most of the type I realize the 
error in time for going back to the previous situation with a 
reasonable number of Cmd-Shift-Z, sometimes it's too late and the 
modifications were saved in the meantime.

Please... (If I had a picture of Calvin's eyes when he's telling this, 
I would add it here.)
