What version of TeXShop are you using? Version of OS X? I'm using  
TeXShop 2.03 in OS 10.4.2 and have no problem having TeXShop open and  
process the .dvi file. It is located in a folder where you probably  
don't have write privileges so TeXShop has to create the .pdf file in  
a temporary directory; only newer versions have that ability. You can  
copy the ifthen.dvi to your desktop and then any version of TeXShop  
shouldn't have a problem.

Good Luck,
