same here (most recent OSX and gwtex etc). I did not install emacs, I  
think. How do I check? The only thing I vaguely remember is a  
download from Adam Maxwell's website...

I always thought the whole discussion is to have .tex files as a  
separate group (like emails, pdf-documents, directories, ...) in the  
spotlight result list. Is this possible? Is it possible for .bib-
