This is indeed connected with the absence of dvipdfmx.def, which is  
required for proper use of dvipdfmx by TeXniscope.

Save <http://ftp.ktug.or.kr/KTUG/dvipdfmx/contrib/latex/ 
dvipdfmx.def.sample> to disk as dvipdfmx.def, move it to ~/Library/ 
texmf/latex/, modify your example by replacing [dvipdfm] by  
[dvipdfmx], TeX it and open the DVI output in TeXniscope: the problem  
is gone!

This isn't that surprising actually: from the 3rd message in the  
thread <http://www.tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2005-October/

Once this is settled, you may move dvipdfmx.def to /Library/teTeX/ 
share/texmf.local/tex/latex/graphics/, running "sudo -H mktexlsr"  

Hope this helps,
