If you follow Herbert's instructions regarding using `ls -ale Library/ 
TeXShop/Engines` you may see some extra information directly under the  
listing for the engine you are having a problem with, with extra  
permissions regarding other users/groups.
I'm not saying this is the problem, but the fact that there are @s  
right after the listing makes me wonder.

You could also try `ls -@ Library/TeXShop/Engines` to see if there is  
more information about the file. None of my text files get any  
extended attributes, most likely because I use the system emacs with  
the default encoding from the Terminal.
Perhaps you could make a backup of your engine and then try saving it  
as plain text from a program such as emacs or vi that doesn't add the  
extended attributes?

(Don't forget to check/change permissions on the "new" engine file.)
