since 2.13 I have a funny user-related problem (ie, it does not occur 
in a new user account):

Since TexShop 2.13, I cannot make the current version of TeXShop the 
default application for .tex files any more and in the Terminal the 
command 'open -a TeXShop' opens TeXShop 2.12 (which I kept around out 
of caution, having renamed it). Just having deleted TeXShop 2.12, the 
Terminal command now opens TeXShop 2.10 beta 9, another version I kept 

Moving all previous versions into the Trash or zipping them solves the 
problem moving them back into the /Applications/TeX folder or any other 
folder on my computer, brings it back.

Double-clicking a .tex file always opens in the current version, ie, 
the one named TeXShop.app, currently TeXShop 2.14 and until yesterday 
2.13. Doing a Get Info on a .tex file shows TeXShop 2.12.app (or now 
that I have deleted that TeXShop 2.10 beta 9.app) as the default app. I 
can change that to TeXShop.app for individual files and it sticks, 
applying this to all files and it reverts back to TeXShop 2.12.app 
(MisFox or Default Apps don't fare any better).

This not really an issue since zipping the old applications is an easy 
work-around. But maybe a change introduced in version 2.13 is 
triggering this, or more likely something is borked in my user account, 
I have a couple of other quirks that are 'fixed' by creating a new user
