Bad practice by whom or by what?

To me it's TeXShop that's incorrectly working. All editors I know 
become aware of a change in the file they've loaded before for editing. 
And TeXShop notices this with PDF files already. Why is it failing with 
a TeX file?!

I think it's a necessary enhancement to sense whether the TeX input 
file has changed.

I am CC'ing my answer to Richard Koch. Could be he's not aware of this 
and not paying attention to this thread because of other work. 
Approximately 1h ago I opened a TeX file in TeXShop 1.40 on Panther 
(Mac OS X 10.3.9). Then, in Terminal, I attached twice with 'cat >> 
file' comments to the file -- TeXShop takes no notice!
