I do, and for some time now, on all 2.10s, including the latest.  (I  
recall 2.09 was fine.)

With no changes to engines and such, whenever I have a LaTeX file  
with an \input, TeXShop stalls eternally and needs a Force Quit.   
Which seems absurd, as it is only a front end.  (File typesets fine  
from the command line.)

And here's another one:  Open a *big* file in TeXShop and immediately  
upon opening scroll down, say, with the mouse wheel or a Page Down.   
Chances are TeXShop will stall and need a Force Quit.  I you give  
TeXShop a second, it'll all be fine.  (You might need a slower  
machine for this one.)  Might be related to colorization or some  
other digesting.
