This means your document is calling for fonts by filename, using  
something like [lmroman12-regular], rather than by "real" name (e.g.,  
"Latin Modern Roman 12" or similar). This may come from the fontspec  
package rather than something you're explicitly using in your  
document; I think the latest fontspec uses Latin Modern in this way  
as the default, if you load it but then don't say \setromanfont 
{....}, \setmonofont, etc.

So either ensure that you explicitly tell fontspec what font names  
you want, or don't load fontspec at all if you don't want to actually  
use its features to specify fonts.

To use Latin Modern through fontspec's default option, you'd need a  
new TeXShop engine that calls for the xdvipdfmx driver instead of  
xdv2pdf. You can create this by duplicating the existing XeLaTeX  
engine, naming it XeLaTeX-x.engine (or something), and changing the  
typesetting command in the engine to:

  xelatex -output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E" "$1"
