Sorry Richard, I experienced this problem with TeXShop 2.09a!

But the typesetting engine still should be XeTeX, so no need to set  
"Additional Typesetting Engines", I think.
Isn't it a question of "Personal Script" for typesetting?
I assumed "Personal Script: TeX-Program"  should read

texexec --tex=xetex

but obviously this is not being executed...
