[OS X TeX] TeXShop won't open .ps in jaguar

Doubleclicking on a .ps file on my system has the effect that TeXShop 
1.20 smoothly converts the file via ghostscript 7.0 to a pdf file, 
ps2pdf12 is being used.

TeXShop, tetex, and ghostscript have been installed well before I 
*upgraded* to OS 10.2 and then to 10.2.1, and I never experienced a TeX 
related problem.

The only unusual (manual) routine I stick to is to do each day

sudo sh /etc/daily

though I don't think that this is related to the trouble other people 
have. More likely that upgrading to 10.2 and not doing a "clean 
install" is  responsible for the different behaviour.
