This issue has been around a long time, and not just under beamer. It
happened to one extent or another with all documents, but it has been
fixed under 10.5 with the latest version of TeXShop. Pre-10.5, TeXShop
would crash on me almost daily. Since I installed 10.5, I don't recall
it crashing once.
