Yes, they are!

Although your command works, the proper name is "TeXShop" ...

In my defaults I have: "KeepBackup = YES;" -- the ";" is only in the  
output of the read command.

For me this happened when doing a change to a TeX source:

   -rw-r--r--     1 pete  pete      8853 18 Jan 00:33 FaZu0501.tex
   -rw-r--r--     1 pete  wheel     8852 17 Jan 17:10 FaZu0501~.tex

  and then un-doing it:

   -rw-r--r--     1 pete  pete      8852 18 Jan 00:35 FaZu0501.tex
   -rw-r--r--     1 pete  wheel     8853 18 Jan 00:33 FaZu0501~.tex
