I just tried it out here and it all seems to work fine. This sounds  
like something is not using latex.

How are you calling latexmk? Something like

%%!TEX TS-program = latexmk

as the first line in the file should guarantee that the latexmk engine  
is used. What version of TeXShop are you using? What are the contents  
of the ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/latexmk.engine and ~/Library/TeXShop/ 
bin/latexmkrc files?

Good Luck,
