Luckily, I have kept all previous packages. It turns out that  
packages have ALWAYS contained TeXShop 2.03
and TeXShop 1.40 and installed the appropriate one. (Now the package  
has 2.04 and 1.41., which fix the
simpdftex problem) So this copy of 1.35 cannot have come from the  

Did you notice that the installer puts programs in /Applications/TeX.  
Is it possible that you already had
TeXShop 1.35 on system 10.2 and didn't notice the later copy in / 
Applications/TeX? I admit this may be
a problem for folks who are using the package to update themselves,  
but I put applications in the
TeX subfolder at the request of someone else and like that organization.
