I created a new engine with your code and replaced the right *.gls name:

	fname="`basename "$1" .tex`"	# here the LaTeX file's name is given
	pdflatex  "$fname"
	bibtex "glossar.gls"	# this is the constant name!
	pdflatex  "$fname"
	pdflatex  "$fname"

TeXShops runs four times but the console says for the part of bibtex:  
"I couldn't open file name `glossar.gls.aux'"

I checked the name but that is right.
