Moreover, apple-clicking on the latex source causes the pdf page to  
appear aligned at the top so if the selected text is at the bottom of  
the page it remains hidden and you must manually scroll the window.

I don't consider it minor.  I was looking forward to the correction  
of this problem but it's still there in TeXShop 2.09. I did switch  
briefly to single page view to avoid this behavior but working on  
text that goes from  the bottom of a page to the beginning of the  
next was really awkward.
