I don't have any problems with custom bst files in ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bst, using a recent gwTeX via i-Installer.  However, BibDesk 1.3 now catches typesetting errors correctly, and people are being made aware of problems that may have existed for a long time.

This is a bit odd; do you have anything in .MacOSX/environment.plist?  The :/usr/texbin is what BibDesk's preferences are set to use, but you're actually using whatever comes first in the path.
