Hum.  I have both TL 2010 and TL 2011, and I had gone between TL 2010  
and TL 2011, but ultimately chose TL 2011.  TeXShop complained about / 
usr/texbin/pdflatex being broken.  I had to go into .DefaultTeX to fix  
the problem using the method you described.  Now, /usr/texbin points  
to /Library/TeX/Distributions/.DefaultTeX/Contents/Programs/texbin,  
which in turn points to i386.  TeXShop now works, but .FactoryDefaults  
is not involved.
