I did a clean install of 10.4 and loaded Gerben's distribution with

TeXniscope works just fine, and the new TeXShop looks impressive,
especially with the new synchronization capability. On my 550 MHz
titanium Powerbook, keyboard to screen rendering with large source
files is considerably faster than it was, although it's still a
little sluggish, especially compared to BBEdit.
After using BBEdit 8.2 for a while, it suddenly popped up a message

After typesetting with TeXShop, the PDF preview came forward in focus
as expected with no problem. However, when I clicked inside the text
area of the source editor to bring that back into focus, I got an
unending spinning beach ball and my fan got pretty loud. I had to
force quite TeXShop.
