[OS X TeX] Avoiding the deletion of .aux files upon encountering errors (TeXShop)

Greetings all,

I've been running into a strange problem with TeXShop... if I have a  
document set up to "typeset" in one pass (in particular, I've run  
xdvipdfmx or XeLaTeX once to set up the citations, then I've run  
BibTeX to generate the footnotes and bibliography, and finally run  
xdvipdfmx or XeLaTeX a second time to generate the text with  
references and biblio included), but the typesetting runs into a  
problem, all of my aux files and the .bbl file get deleted.  All of a  
sudden I have to rerun, e.g. xdvipdfmx, BibTeX and xdvipdfmx over  
again, to get back where I was.

Is there a way to avoid deletion of .aux and .bbl files upon  
encountering an error?  Fixing the error (e.g. a misspelled command)  
is easy enough, there shouldn't be any reason to have to go back to  
step one.

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.
