[OS X TeX] problem with \renewcommand{}{\arabic{}}

I am not surprised that it works : I don't think that there is a  
problem in the commands. As I've never found any example of such a  
problem on internet, I suspect it is more complicated.
Here is a complete test file, with the pdf that I get from this.
I didn't updated MacTeX, because I've just installed the last version.  
I reinstalled it 2 times (and redownloaded another version from  
another mirror).
I copied the picins.sty file on ~/Library/texmf/tex (this is the only  
thing I put there), but it didn't work before I put it there.
