Nope.  If I don't check keep keep postscript file, I get this (and I  
have both the latest TeXShop, and thr latest of your (Gerben's) i- 
installer installations), which is even worse:

### This is /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/ 
simpdftex, Version $Revision: 2.18 $
### /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/tex fpe.tex
This is TeX, Version 3.141592 (Web2C 7.5.5)
! Undefined control sequence.
l.2 \documentclass

So, what?  Reinstall everything?  How do I clear out what is  
installed?  And, oddly, this has never happened before, and, it has  
affected every computer I have (too many to list) (all of which have  
been updated to the latest of both i-installer files and TeXShop--- 
before I discovered the problem).  I have no desire to spend the many  
hours on each reinstalling.  Something is seriously toasted.
