Ah. I was just dropping the file on the TeXshop icon in the dock - then 
it was not using the default UTF-8 encoding I set. If I open the file 
with an explicit UTF-8 encoding all is fine.

This seems like a TeXshop bug to me if it does not use the default 
encoding set when dropping files on the TeXshop icon.

Thanks for the advice.
