Go to TeXShop Preferences... menu, and in the Engine tab, in TeX +  
dvips + distiller change altpdftex --maxpfb for

simpdftex tex --maxpfb

and change altpdflatex --maxpfb for

simpdftex latex --maxpfb

Make sure Save Postscript File is not checked.

Gerben Wierda has been given this instructions since the new TeX was  
in the Experimental phase.
