With TeXShop 2.10beta8 you can get extra engines for xe(la)tex that  
use the xdvipdfmx driver. Temporarily move the Engines folder out of  
~/Library/TeXShop/ and (re)start TeXShop. This will create a new  
Engines folder with an internal folder with the extra engine files  
and instructions. You can then move the contents of your older  
Engines folder into the new one.

You might also want to do the same thing with the bin folder since  
some new files are there if you want to use the latexmk engines (also  

Hope that using one of the xdvipdfmx engine files will solve your
