Well, the PATH to the TeX Live binaries has a final slash: can you  
remove it in /etc/profile and /etc/csh.login?

I made a simple test setting deliberately one PATH component to / 
<some path>/ and invoked the which command to find an executable  
there in /<some path>/. I received an answer:

	/<some path>//<the executable>

You see that double slash? This *can* lead to assuming the ``/<some  
path>/´´ part is substituted by the following ``/<the executable>´´  
term because it starts with a ``/´´, i.e. the root of the file  
system. So ``/<the executable>´´, i.e. /texmfstart, is used by  
TeXShop in your case. And this file (or sym-link) does not exist.  
(And for me this // path led to another *very* strange error.)

So I recommend to edit /etc/profile and /etc/csh.login, removing the  
final slashes from "/usr/local/TeXLive/bin/i386-apple-darwin- 
current/", to log-out and to log-in again ...

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
