I've occasionally had a problem where it appears that the OS X PDF  
subsystem seems to go crazy and won't display a pdf file properly in  
either TeXShop or Preview. Other things start going wrong too; e.g.,  
Mail starts to behave strangely. Only a re-boot seems to fix this.  
I've had this happen in 10.4.6 and above.

Good Luck,
