There's a possible problem with this: it *appends* a TeX binaries
directory to the current path, which means that if your path already
includes some other (old?) TeX binaries directory, maybe from a
different distribution, you may not be running the programs you think.
Personally, I use engine scripts in TeXShop that do *not* set the
path at all, and instead rely on having the directories I want
already present in my default path. If I do want to ensure that an
engine uses binaries from a particular (non-default) location, then I
have the engine script *prefix* that directory to the path.
Don't know if this explains your problems, but it may be worth
checking paths carefully.
BTW, with the newest distributions, the recommended approach is to
use /usr/texbin as the path for TeX-related binaries; see the
documentation about the TeX Distributions pref panel, paths, etc.
