Thanks Claus, this worked.  I should have thought of this, having had 
to make the same change to the altpdfxc script to reflect the change 
from altpdftex to simpdftex  But this leads to a second question (not 
necessarily to you directly, since it's a general TeXShop question).

All of my Macs are multiuser setups.  Your solution will require me 
to copy the changed macros to all users, which is ok, but not an 
ideal solution. My understanding of the /Library vs. ~/Library setup 
on the Mac is that I should be able to put anything accessible to all 
users in /Library, but there is no TeXShop folder in /Library.  Will 
moving the folder from ~/Library to /Library make those changes 
available to all users?

Or alternatively, there seem to be copies of these scripts inside the 
TeXShop package itself.  Does making the change there have a global 
(or in fact any) effect?
