Bibtex never writes to a .bib file so there should be no problem re-using the .bib file. When you say ``replace the .bib file... by a new exported one'' what do you mean? ``Exported'' from what?

What you are describing is NOT normal behavior so I don't think it has anything to do with the TeX distribution or TeXShop, etc.

Can you create a minimal but compilable set of files that you can let us have to see what you are doing and what is happening?

Good Luck,
