allows all this (and also to use other TeX distributions in the system).

One possible reason for a failure could be

which might fail with old gwTeX (but /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.texlive/ 
tex/latex/base/utf8.def is loaded). How is it when you comment this  

Could you clear your font caches, log out and log in again, and try  
LaTeXiT again? *We* don't know when the font cache polluting bug was  
introduced in pdfTeX. And when it's that bug you encounter, then  
using XeTeX or DVI->PS->PDF should circumvent the bug  *in a clean
