There's a TeXShop bug which has been around for quite some time, and  
which I meet practically daily. It may still live inside this new  
release, I've not tested yet.

Here's the stuff: when you work on a document for some time (a few  
hours say), saving and typesetting often (every 5 minutes say), using  
the keyboard shortcuts Cmd-S for save and Cmd-T for typeset, at some  
point the preview window stops, after Cmd-T, to take into account the  
changes you made in the input window, and Cmd-S stops saving these  
changes; however, using the associated menu item Save instead of Cmd- 
S does save the changes.

I've never been able to identify something triggering the bug, other  
than the fact that the input document has been modified and saved a  
large number of times in a given TeXShop session.
