There doesn't seem to be any straightforward way of displaying full  
pathnames in the title bar on OS X. Even Mac OS Hints seems clueless  
about this <http://forums.macosxhints.com/showthread.php?p=158006>.

The external editor BBEdit can display full path names in its  
toolbar, as set by a pref Windows > Show Full Paths (at least in  
version 7.1). I haven't been able to locate a similar pref in the  
external editor AlphaX (latest version at <http:// 
alphatcl.sourceforge.net/wikit/>), but I'd be surprised if it weren't  
there somewhere.

That said, where is this option to display full pathnames in Open  
Recent… in TeXShop?
