I don't think there were any changes made to TeXShop 1.4.3 (needed
for Panther) to automatically ``fix'' the path.

The (pdf)TeX Path setting in TeXShop->Preferences->Engine, with
either gwTeX or TeXLive, should be set to
once and for all. Then, when you change the active distribution
(there is now a System Preference Pane for dong this) nothing will
have to change in TeXShop's (or BibDesk's, or LaTeXiT's) Preferences.
