Here is something new—at least to me.
A several hours long TeXShop-Intaglio session without anything wrong
or any warning of impending disaster. (No that's not what's new.)
I had VLC playing from a Linux server (No, I didn't set it up myself)
and all was well.
Then, after VLC finished playing a folder, I went to browse and …
most of the names were garbaged. I took that as a warning of
impending disaster and closed TeXShop.
Then, without doing anything else, I relaunched it and all was fine
with VLC which I had not even closed.
[I am still running Version 2.14 under 10.4.11 on a PPC.]
