I just tried the minimal file and it compiles w/o complaint using both the "Tex+DVI" and "Pdftex" settings. I assume that epstopdf is used in latter case, and should have the same issue on both systems. True?

>> Are you using the same TeX Distribution in both? TeX Live (supplied by the MacTeX installer) 2009 and 2010 are very different because restricted mode is enabled in 2010 but not 2009. I'll look into it.

> Both the 10.5 and 10.6 systems have the same 2010 TeXLive installation, and both are updated from the same mirror at roughly the same time, so I should think things are fine. Also, I just recalled, my 'kpsewhich' results both specified 2010 in their output :-}
But you also said that you were using TeX+DVI on one system and pdfTeX on the other and that was why it worked on one and not the other even though both may be using TL2010 pretest. I was particularly interested in the case of having a problem with eps conversion with TL2010 pretest while using pdf(la)TeX with --shell-escape (which is the default under TeXShop). it is that particular set of things that should work as before, i.e., as with TL2009, while using TL2010. Expect a fix via TLU within the next few days.
