[OS X TeX] Odd behaviours with new TeXShop

I am seeing problem 2. on Mavericks 10.9.5 and TexShop 3.44!! It was fine until this morning, and all of a sudden in the middle of a bunch of editing, aux files have to be trashed manually. Strange non-deterministic behavior. Maybe somebody installed Yosemite behind my back without me knowing it :-).
