TeXShop and all other applications in Aqua do not read "dot RC" files  
(therefore you need to teach it it where the TeX and the PS distiller  
programmes are). And that's also true for processes like *tex that  
TeXShop starts, directly. The engine files, OTOH, which are simple  
shell scripts, /can/ read such "dot RC" files – so they exist. And  
the #! line of the engine script does not stop them doing so!



Who the fsck is "General Failure," and why is he reading my disk?
