I can confirm that this also happens with TeXShop 2.10beta2. I was going to propose, as a workaround until the problem is fixed, that you could print the PDF using Preview. But then I discovered another anomaly. If I print a TeXShop produced PDF -- say, foobar1.pdf -- it shows up as foobar.dvi (?!) in the queue and on the printer's cover sheet. Still, I think that you could use Preview for the present.
