Are you aware of ktrace/kdump? Once you've running a single instance of 
TeXShop you can open the TeX source and determine the pid (process id) 
of TeXShop. With this knowledge you can invoke as super-user ktrace 
with the option to follow sub-processes ("descendants"). Then you 
compile the source file. You better quit TeXShop now and invoke as 
super-user 'ktrace -C' to finish tracing. With kdump you can examine 
the ktrace output.

Another way would be to study TeXShop's source ...

First way would be:

ps -xu | grep TeXShop | grep -v grep      # first column your login 
name, second the pid
sudo ktrace -dp <pid> -f TeXShop_epstopdf.trc -t i -t n
sudo ktrace -C
sudo kdump -f TeXShop_epstopdf.trc -t i -t n | grep -v /.vol

Then you could try to read the remaining lines. If they're too much 
just invoke this command:

sudo kdump -f TeXShop_epstopdf.trc -t i -t n | grep epstopdf

Since all IO from the run is recorded in the trc file you can adapt 
your filter many times.
