A couple of thoughts:

1. Is there anything that might relate in the system logs?  Run "Utilities/Console.app" and select "All Messages".  You may have to rerun your attempt.  When viewing the system log specifically, you can "Insert Marker" (view menu or a tool-bar icon) before rerunning the attempt.  That may help, visually.

2.  Have you restarted System Prefs?

3.  If needed, someone may be able to send you the older pre-release pref panel from the "0529" release of MacTeX.
