Please tell us a bit of your engines! And please check your TeXShop  
preferences, too!

Usually when TeXShop is installed it provides its own engine scripts  
in /Applications/TeXShop.app/Contents/Resources/TeXShop/Engines. You  
can have your own (versions) in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines. Depending  
on the TeX source file's header such an engine can be selected  
directly, otherwise you have to choose an entry from the rectangular  
shaped TeX or LaTeX menu (by default the second one from the left).  
The mechanism of selecting directly the right engine from the source  
file's contents is implemented in an imperialistic fashion: only the  
TeXShop syntax is allowed on these two lines, any more commented or  
uncommented text makes it fail for sure ... (either you obey my law  
or ... use M$?)

The mentioning of "Display has been set to 0:0" in the console window  
seems to imply that you are using some X11 application to display  
some output of XeTeX. Why? What is the contents of the engine you used?
