If by "senseless glyphs" you mean in your .tex input files, have you  
tried BBEdit capability to reopen files with another encoding?

File --> Reopen Using Encoding

and try different encoding (Latin 1, Mac Roman, etc.) until all  
glyphs are right, and then Save As... your file in UTF-8, no-BOM.

If this works, one last thing ---I don't know why, but recently, with  
newly created files in BBEdit, I have had to open them in TeXShop, do  
any small change (like deleting a space and putting it back) and save  
the file before I can typeset it. After that, I can safely edit the  
file in BBEdit.
